A mix of blackberry and herbal, tarry notes create a staunch nose. This is lively, prickly and mildly tannic in feel, with herbal, tarry flavors that hint at green but pull back in the nick of time. Blackberry and peppery secondary flavors finish spicy and minty, with good length and power. Drink through 2016.
