Forward aromas of game and earthy spice notes are upfront on the bouquet, with notes of mulled berries, red plum and fig providing a concentrated, fruity backdrop. Earthy tones continue to dominate the medium-weight mouth, as flavors of tree bark and baking spice flood the palate and linger long into the finish. Fine tannins lend a satiny, smooth texture to the mouthfeel.
