Deep, shimmering ruby. Ripe dark berries, mocha and candied licorice on the fragrant nose. Plush and broad in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet mulberry, cherry cola and fruitcake flavors that take a spicy turn as the wine opens up. Deftly plays richness off energy and finishes long and smooth, with the cherry note echoing strongly. Drinking Window 2023-2028. (Josh Raynolds)
Wine Tasting Notes
The first look displays primary fruit characters of mulberry, blueberry and plum. Deeper inspection however starts to reveal more complex layers, conjuring images of aniseed, fennel and coriander seed. The sweet and savory fruits are laced by fine silken tannins which lead to a super persistent finish, again displaying a delightful fruitiness, accompanied by more savory, cedary, baking spice like notes. Simply put, this wine is liquid velvet.
