Alka typically delivers size and oak, and this vintage shows a thick coating of oak on top of herbal cassis and blackberry scents. A concentrated, lively palate is bright in acidity, while oaky, savory flavors of balsamic berry fruits and chocolate finish baked, spicy, bold and chewy. Drink through 2023.
