Wiry, slightly volatile aromas of blackberry and cassis come with rooty notes and a mild shot of vinegar. This feels solid and creamy, with lactic oak creating chewy weight. Flavors of blackberry, vanilla and caramel are roasted and salty, while the finish tastes toasty, minty and oaky, with hard tannins.
