A deep purplish red, this one is rich on both the nose and palette. Since of lush dark plums mixed with candle spice, saddle leather, floral notes and cocoa baking powder. The sweet smokiness calls to mine the smell of a campfire burning in the woods. The pallet starts off smooth and continually expands, with earthy flavors of dark fruit compote, baking chocolate, leather and toasty oak. Gritty, finally textured tannins build all the way through the finish, which lingers with notes of bittersweet chocolate and ripe berries.
