Pressed purple flower, brambly blackberry, boysenberry and black cherry flesh take center stage on this rich, decadent wine. Nuances of oaky spice add depth to the lushly textured palate, with big tannins and a firm, mouthfilling texture that lingers long into the finish. Attractive now, but should also age well through the next three years.
