...exhibits sweet, broad flavors, and plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface. However, the abundant cherry, black currant, licorice, and smoke notes obscure the tannic clout.
A powerfully extracted wine... The new wood that goes with the extraction is obvious at this stage in the wine’s development, but that cassis fruit will bring out the freshness later.
Very clean, with blackberry, currant and light vanilla aromas. Full and juicy, with chewy tannins and a long finish.

Spiced intense cassis with cedary notes and a slight gamey aroma. Tangy and quite tight and a little leafy on the finish.
