Dense and powerful, this hits squarely with deep blackberry aromas matched by brushy, herbal notes. It's a wide-bodied load with full but soft tannins and tons of extract. Toast, bitter chocolate and baking-spice flavors accent core blackberry fruit, while the finish tastes of coffee and feels a bit hot. Drink through 2019.
