Vanilla and toasted-coconut-laced black-fruit abound on the nose of this seductive Bordeaux-style blend, with a solid concentration of black cherry, boysenberry and blackberry flavors. Medium-plus in weight, the tannins are bold but integrated into the plush fruit profile, and become well-resolved on the char-spiced finish. Drink 2021–2025.
