Concentrated layers of dark cherry, brambly berry, dried bay leaf, anise, and toasty oak, highlighted by notes of clove and black pepper.Rich flavors of dark cassis, black cherry, bay and sweet vanilla are interwoven in this robust, full-bodied wine. Dense mountain fruit fills the palate, with hints of cedar, plum, and sage lingering on the finish.

Ripe and gutsy, punchy and lively, marrying tarry-edged grip with a mix of steeped fig, blackberry and blueberry fruit flavors before the singed sage, juniper and black tea accents weave in on the finish. Cellar for maximum effect. – J.M., August 6, 2020
