This wine opens with aromas of woodland berries, forest floor and spice with hints of menthol. The ripe, low-acid palate delivers fleshy black cherry accented with thyme, sage and a hint of licorice alongside tight tannins.
Lead pencil and mineral dryness upfront followed by dark fruit, blackberry and rum cake. The wine presents a soft round mouthfeel, with ample structure and length. Lingering barbecue and ripe fruit mark the close.
