"Brilliant violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits and candied flowers, along with subtle oak spice, vanilla and cola accents. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering black raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors and a hint of smokiness that builds as the wine stretches out. Finishes sappy, penetrating and quite long, with smooth, slow-building tannins adding subtle grip." - Josh Raynolds
TASTING NOTES |
Bold blackberry, cherry and dark plum fruit flavors abound in this solid, energetic wine. The extended barrel aging is apparent with the hints of vanilla, tobacco and light roast coffee and gentle tannic structure. While full, plump and weighty, there is a beam of core acidity that gives the wine energy and lift with a long, smoky finish shaped by smooth, even tannins.
