Sweet and pleasant smelling, with aromas of wild herbs, lavender and jammy black fruits. Feels chunky and solid, with a grainy, mildly tannic mouthfeel and bright raspberry, cassis and plum flavors. Stout and just rich and thick enough on the finish; Malbec with Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah and Petit Verdot.
