Tasting Notes

Deep violet. A highly perfumed, mineral-tinged bouquet features ripe boysenberry, cherry, licorice and baking spice scents, and a smoky nuance gains power with air. Stains the palate with sappy dark fruit, spicecake and candied violet flavors that show impressive clarity and back-end thrust. Chewy, slow-building tannins add grip to the finish, which hangs on with excellent, floral- and mineral-driven tenacity.
