Medium ruby in color. Intoxicating bouquet of blackberry jam, Morello cherries, spice cake, and violets. Full bodied with incredibly concentrated sweet black fruit, soft tannins, and 15.5% ABV. $75.

Really nice. Took some time to open but it did so very well. Big, fairly bold, great mid-palette.

Hello that is refreshing - a bit tight cab nose of cassis, and a bit more acidity/salinity than I'm used to but very tasty. I would eat this with sweet KC-STYLE BBQ and a slaw.
