Very rich and lush aromas of black currant that are zesty rather than overripe meet with hints of chaparral, cherry wood smoke and sweet lavender... There's a strong sagebrush quality to the sip, with blackberry sauce and peppercorn husks in the midpalate.
...powerful, intense wine...there is good purity and depth to the dark, red-toned fruit. Floral notes offer brightness and perfume...
Baked black fruit, fine tannins, intense peppery fruit and strong black-olive notes. Finishes with fresh mint herbaceousness.
