Chocolate cassis liqueur cherries jubilee spices and violets are found in its magnificent aromatics. Aged in 80% new oak (of which 80% is French and the balance Pennsylvanian) this concentrated gem slathers the palate with black raspberries spices copious quantities of cherries and blackberries that envelope its significant tannin. Projected maturity: now-2016.

Knockout nose combines dark cherry black plum licorice graphite chocolate and mint all lifted by a floral topnote. Sweet on entry then spicy and firm in the middle with flavors of black fruits mint and licorice. Dense without being weighty; not a fat or thick wine but offers lovely lift. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins.
