This wine is all about black brambly fruit. Black berries dominate with some blue berry hints. It has a lovely crème caramel character that compliments the dark fruit and a mild root beer layer that seems to be a strong vineyard characteristic. There is an abundance of spices, clove mainly in addition to a lovely Swiss milk chocolate. In the mouth this wine has an abundance of fine, mouth coating tannin. The flavors match the aromas well. The finish is very fruit driven and has a great acid level that make it a fun food wine with your heartier meats, especially game.
