Rather stemmy on the nose for a $50 wine, while the palate is sheering and firm as nails, with licorice and a forced sweetness that starts as blackberry and turns to licorice. With raisin, brandy and anisette flavors driving everything, you better like sweet, liqueur-like drinks if you're going to fall for this one.
