"Lurid ruby. Aromas of ripe dark fruits, candied licorice and pungent flowers, lent vivacity by a peppery element. Plush, sweet and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins shape a spicy, nicely persistent finish that leaves behind a note of black pepper. - Josh Raynolds"
