This opens with initially assertive oaky tones of cocoa powder, vanilla sauce and sweet spice that marry seamlessly with raspberry jam and boysenberry fruit. The palate is velvety and plush, with decadent fruit flavors and earthy soil and spice notes that hang around through the long finish. Drink now–2020.
