Muddled blackberry, black cherry and boysenberry are the initial aromas on the nose of this wine, with supporting notes of sweet spice, toasted oak, crushed lavender and bay leaf. The palate is plush and juicy, with ripe fruit flavors that are framed by accents of licorice, toasted peppercorn and mocha. Drink now–2018.
