Sleek and focused, featuring loganberry and huckleberry fruit, lined with incense, dried anise and singed mesquite notes. That savory combo runs through the finish, adding texture and contrast to the fruit.
...sports a deep garnet-purple color, revealing notes of blackcurrant pastilles, Black Forest cake and black raspberries with touches of wild sage, pencil lead and damp soil with a waft of cedar. Medium-bodied, the palate has compelling vivacity and freshness with plenty of juicy black fruit and well-played, grainy tannins, finishing with lovely purity.
