"Dark ruby. Powerful, oak-spiced blackberry and blueberry aromas take on mocha, woodsmoke and vanilla qualities with air. Lush, weighty and seamless in the mouth, showing excellent focus and spicy thrust to the dark fruit liqueur, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors. This wine really stains the palate, but I get no impression of excess weight. Finishes sweet, round and extremely long, featuring smooth tannins and a repeating blue fruit note. - Josh Raynolds."
