Fresh Maraschino cherry, velvety tannins and good acid balance make this drinkable now.

Medium Ruby. Some balsamic, menthol adding complexity to the robust, crisp red fruit aromas. Savory, silky, tannins, some noticeable oak in there palate and finish. Harmonious.

Doughy, baked bread initially, Rosemary, but with a eucalyptus edge. Smoked cherry and açai over dry straw, all with a bright almost sweet red cherry vapor. Black cherry taste with a crisp burnt edge topped by black olive tapenade, that smooths to a dry gliding finish of oolong and black plum, cedar and opium. This thing is a Boxer Rebellion in a bottle, replete with the signature spot of tea! Great value, and depth for a non-reserve.

(**) black cherries, big, rounded tannins and lush, fleshy mouthfeel make this smooth enough for quaffing but bold enough for grilled meats

ABC $20, pretty good. Great structure and acidity, very extracted. Would buy again.
