Precise and zesty, with expressive blackberry, smoky beef and cracked pepper flavors that zip toward refined tannins.
...blackberry and citrus aromas that follow through to a full-bodied, dense and rich palate and lots of fruit. A little hot on the finish, but impressive.
The aromas are subdued for the Rocks District but still draw you into the glass, with notes of olive, freshly mortared herb, plum, orange twist, firepit and moist earth. The flavors are layered, showing depth and intensity.
Black olive and black cherry on the nose, plus a whiff of caramel that eventually blew off. Savory, plush and ripe on the palate, conveying a fine-grained texture to its sweet berry, spice and black olive flavors. Classic Rocks texture of oily olive tapenade... The broad finish shows restrained sweetness and a repeating saline character.
