Tasting Note

Quite lively and fragrant with ripe blueberry, raspberry and blackberry fruits, tart pomegranate and red Jolly ranchers! Cedar box, brown spices, cherry cola, dark chocolate, a soft whiff of violets, creamy vanilla oak, and a kick of pepperspice. A layered weaving of fruit and spice, uber-dense and deep. Rich in mouth, bright berry fruit tang like a wonderful berry cobbler, good structure for aging, a bit chewy in its youth.
