David Shaw

Dense, inky purple, highly extracted pigment. Black currant and butter aromas with a hint of spearmint. Blackberry and spearmint flavors, some cherry and violet-floral on finish. Smooth mouthfeel, chalky tannins on initial pour. Moderate skin astringency, some lingering seed bitterness alongside those lingering fruit flavors. Restrained acidity but nicely balanced between varietal flavor profile and tannic structure. Mild barrel character emerges after two hours
