halliday logo"Opaque purple-red with a vibrant hue. Fresh blackcurrant fruit, a ripple of raspberry brightness and plenty of vanilla from 40% new American hogsheads, which also add grainy tannins. This helps to corset the wine into a medium-bodied, more athletic shape. - James Halliday"

vinous logo 250"Glass-staining ruby. Musky dark berry, cherry pit and candied licorice on the nose; a subtle floral quality gains strength with air. Plush cherry and dark berry compote flavors show good depth and breadth and gain sweetness and a smoky mocha quality on the back half. Finishes on a gently tannic note, featuring a repeating dark fruit note and very good, sweet persistence. - Josh Raynolds"

Lush and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering juicy black and blue fruit preserve flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Shows impressive energy and supple tannins on the finish, which leaves juicy blueberry and peppery spice notes behind. - Josh Raynolds"
