"Opaque ruby. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of licorice, smoked meat and Asian spices. The lively, precise palate, displays intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that put on weight and become spicier with air. Powerful yet lithe, this wine delivers outstanding clarity and persistence, with fine-grained tannins that build slowly and harmoniously in the glass. This wine was aged in a combination of new and used French and American oak barrels for one year. - Josh Raynolds"
