High alcohol concentrated fruit is back seat . Drink up before it goes over the edge.

Tons of berries, dark fruit, cola, baking spices. This is a lush and big wine but also so well-balanced with nice acidity and soft tannins. Medium/long finish. And quite youthful. Two hour decant.

Decidedly dark fruit profile with impressive boldness, tawny and rich with sweet plum and warm mouth coating tannins. In a tumbler by a bonfire with s'mores 🍫 on our last night at the beach 👌🏽🔥🍷

Stewed mix berries on the nose. Well resolved but still showing some soft tannins. Ripe & juicy blackberries, dark cherries, cherries, stewed plums, rhubarb, steeped tea, black cherry cola, licorice, raisin, sweet spices, soft grainy brown volcanic minerals, fresh & dry red florals, bright acidity and a nice lean elegant finish.

Very in your face but texturally beautiful and loads of ripe fruit with a velvety smooth finish. Still developing but excellent purity and depth.
