"Dried violets lay atop black cherry dust, and blackberry compote with a vein of savory aromas. The palate is serious and firm with fresh, lean, black cherry, baked strawberry, bitter chocolate, charred meats, and scorched sandalwood. The balance is excellent, with plenty of textured grip, juicy acidity, and animal character. The finish is long, solid, and aromatic."
“Dark flavors of blackberry, black cherry and licorice highlight this powerful red. Thickly textured and almost chewy, yet shining with bright acidity, this reveals black pepper elements on the impenetrable finish.”
