Aromas of mature black-skinned berry, baked plum, mint and violet mix with whiffs of dark culinary spice. The ripe chewy palate doles out raspberry jam, fleshy black cherry and licorice set against firm, polished tannins. The juicy fruit flavors deftly support the hefty alcohol. Drink through 2022.
