"Inky ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe, oak-spiced dark berries, candied flowers, vanilla and incense, plus a smoky mineral overtone. Sappy, plush and pure on the palate, offering deeply concentrated blackberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out on the back half. The extremely long, smoke-tinged finish displays silky tannins, outstanding clarity and an echo of candied flowers. - Josh Raynolds"
