A pleasant whiff of barnyard lends savory tones of earth and animal to crisp blackberry and plum flavors. It's an opulent, slightly warming wine with a plummy, voluminous mouthfeel that's vibrantly balanced by fresh acidity. The finish is moderately long, lingering on hints of sun-dried thyme, lavender and grippy tannins. Enjoy now–2025.
