Bold, with English breakfast tea, dense tannins and dried sage flavors in balance with licorice-laced plum and black cherry flavors. A smoky thread of palo santo lingers on the finish, where the tannins firm up. Drink now through 2030.
Deep purple. Intense aromas of ripe plum, mulberries, and dark fruits with just a hint of toasty, earthy notes underneath. This is an intense little number with ripe mulberry and plum flavors. The mid palate is round and concentrated with the fruit balanced by earthy, savory, and spicy notes, suggesting this is a wine that will develop nicely over the coming years. It has loads of supple, finely managed tannins and the finish is long, spicy, and delicious.
