Color: Oxblood and glistening blackberry jam
Aroma: The wine opens up with brooding aromas of roasted coffee, black licorice and tar; a complex mélange. A few minutes of air coaxes out the sweet aromas of bramble and blackberries laced with hints of vanilla and clove.
Palate: This is a wine of heft and proportion. Flavors are intense with extract of black currants and boysenberries. Ample tannin add to the weight and texture of the wine. Respectable acid cleanses the palate easing the weight of the wine on the tongue.
