Opaque ruby. Sexy oak-spiced aromas of cherry-cola, boysenberry and pipe tobacco. Lush and creamy in texture, with intense dark fruit flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Dusty tannins add shape to a long, sappy, appealingly sweet finish. This wine is a baby.
This crisp red shows density and depth to the blackberry, licorice and pepper flavors, which play against firm tannins on the spicy finish. Best from 2014 through 2018. 11,500 cases imported. –HS
