"(aged for a year in new and used American oak barrels) Dark ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice and vanilla on the nose, along with a subtle floral overtone. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering plush blackberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity. Rich and fleshy in style, delivering solid closing thrust, good persistence and slow-building, harmonious tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
