Smoke and roobios tea dominate the bouquet, with accents of raspberry and cocoa. The mouth is more of the same with soft notes of black plum guts and berry preserves fleshing it out. The texture is like crushed velvet with assertive tannins and structured acidity. Drinkable now, though could age for another year or two.
