"Inky ruby. Dark berries, cherry liqueur, vanilla and clove on the deeply perfumed, sharply delineated nose. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering oak-spiced bitter cherry and blackberry flavors that turn sweeter with air. Picks up a smoky quality on the back half and finishes impressively long, spicy and smooth; harmonious tannins add shape and gentle grip." -JR, Sep/2018
