Blackberry jam, vanilla, and oak. Not overly complex, but an enjoyable style with the proper food, and friends.

Great legs, 10/10. Blackberry and cherry on the nose. A smooth, muted taste to start, and then a grabbing, tannic finish. Fruit forward bit perfectly dry. Good!!

A layered palate of dark fruit with soft tannins, notes of cocoa and white pepper. I purchased at World Market.

Color of clear deep purple. Nose is nice with sweet oak, cherry jam, tobacco leaves, and milky chocolate. Taste is quite pleasant with sweet and peppery spices, a bit zesty, just a bit watery. Aftertaste is average long with marginal tannins, some more tobacco leaves note, quite decent.
