About

87

There's a charred biscuity character on the nose of this wine that very nearly overpowers. Thankfully, there's also a good deal of brambly red and purple fruit, red licorice, pepper and oak spice, too. The palate is grainy textured with juicy berry fruit, muscular, tightly wound tannins and a slightly bitter oaky finish.

Product Description:

Dark ruby red, a pungent, intricate nose of red fruits, earth and spice layered with lifted berry fruit. Fleshy red fruits, on a bed of soft cedar tannins, with a spicy, refreshing finish.
