Fruity with blueberries cherries and blackberrries on the nose. Sweet and sour arrival, some red berries and plums on the development, vanilla, pepper. Weak finish butcworks well with Sunchoke soup.

Wonderful blackberry and oak experience. At first taste, I did not pick up the 14.5% alcohol content. The definition of a value wine.
