A rich overlay of cocoa and roasted coffee bean sit atop ripe, brambly notes of blackberry, boysenberry and black cherry on the nose and mouth of this decadent, immediately likeable bottling. The plush mouthfeel offers silky tannins, with ample acidity and hits of toasted oak and fresh mint leaves that add depth and lift through the close.
