"This is a bright, light unoaked red. Red currants, black olives, cocoa, bay leaves and smoke lead the way, while a quiet, savory line of tannins balances the crunchy acidity and tart cherry fruit on the palate."
“Deep red. Fresh blackberry, spicecake and cola scents and flavors, accompanied by a hint of smokiness and a touch of vanilla in the background. Pliant and appealingly sweet, showing very good clarity and a bitter chocolate note that builds with air. Dusty tannins shape a long, spicy finish that features lingering mocha and cracked pepper notes.”
“Full ruby. Spice-accented cherry and dark berry aromas, backed by a hint of licorice. Fleshy and open-knit, offering appealingly sweet blackberry and cherry flavors that pick up a smoky nuance with air. Finishes gently sweet and broad, displaying building spiciness and a lingering suggestion of bitter cherry.”
