Aromas of wild blackberry and dark currant infused with an inviting mineral essence and earthy forest floor greet the nose. The bright entry offers an interesting contrast with the dark, densely rich flavors that follow. Savor ripe juicy blackberry, huckleberry and black cherry entwined with hints of espresso, dried lavender, tobacco, dark chocolate and cedar. As the flavors linger, the wine’s layered complexity emerges. Beautifully balanced, here is a cellar candidate, or a wine to enjoy now given a little time to breathe before serving.
