It opens with a fragrant and attractive boysenberry, cassis and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, fruit forward and very concentrated. The flavor profile is a ripe blackberry with notes of cassis, dark chocolate and refined minerality. There is a hint of oak and black pepper in the background. The finish is dry and its refined tannins and fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. This wine improves even more with aeration.
