“Brilliant ruby. Powerful, spice-accented red/blue fruit scents are complemented by hints of candied violet and incense. Broad and appealingly sweet, offering palate-staining boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors that are given lift and focus by a spine of smoky minerality. In an ample but lively style, showing solid finishing thrust, molten tannins and lingering sweetness.” - Josh Raynolds
