Vivid ruby. Ripe dark berries, violet and pipe tobacco on the nose, complemented by a smoky accent and a hint of peppery spices. Broad, fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering sweet black and blue fruit flavors that spread out and gain in energy on the back half. The gently tannic finish shows excellent clarity and lift and a juicy boysenberry quality.
