"(aged for a year in a 50/50 mix of new American oak and used French oak barrels) Lurid ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet of red fruit liqueur and potpourri carries suggestions of smoky minerals and oak spices. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a refreshing jolt of white pepper. Rich yet vibrant in style, finishing with supple, late-arriving tannins and a lingering red fruit liqueur note. This sexy wine is pretty delicious already, but it also has the stuffing to age. - Josh Raynolds"
