Vanilla cream and raspberry sauce lead the bouquet of this Bordeaux-stlye blend, followed by darker fruit tones of boysenberry, plum and black cherry. Those notes continue on to the palate, filling the mouth and lending lushness to the crushed velvet texture. Strong but balanced, with a long, evolving finish that ends of a spicy, sweet-smoke accent. Drink now–2016.
