Enticing, fruity aromas of red cherry and brambly berry set the stage for layers of cola, baking spice and cocoa. The medium-weight palate offers a texture like crushed satin, smooth yet defined, with ample acidity to keep the structure and ripe-fruit flavors from feeling overly dense. The spice returns on the finish and continues alongside a hint of peppery warmth. Drink now–2023.
