"(raised in American oak barrels for 20 months) Lurid ruby color. Powerful, smoke-accented scents of red and blue fruits, licorice, pipe tobacco and violet are sharpened by a peppery spice element. Broad, sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering concentrated black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and building fruitcake and coconut notes. Rich yet energetic in character, finishing long and floral, with sneaky tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
