It opens with aromas of black cherry, poached plum, blueberry, vanilla and minerality. The drink brings a bold and rich structure of boysenberry, chocolate-covered cherries and fig with Marionberry and earthiness in the finish. The tannin structure could be a fingerprint of the decision to ferment 20% of the lot on the stems.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 1,015 cases
