This wine is black in color and the nose seems a bit overripe, with raisin, baked berry and licorice aromas. That sense of moderate overripeness carries onto a heavy, obtuse palate. Toasty, herbal, oaky flavors of black currant and blackberry finish herbal, minty, spicy and a bit raisiny. Drink through 2020.
