Captivating with rich gooey blackberry cobbler flavors that are thickly tannic and wonderfully spicy intense and powerful with a wonderful chew. Features hints of black licorice on the long finish. Drink now through 2019... Captivating with rich gooey blackberry cobbler flavors that are thickly tannic and wonderfully spicy intense and powerful with a wonderful chew.

Plenty of cola nut and minerally-graphite notes emerge on the nos followed by smoky notes. As the color suggests an explosive fruit entry of black and blueberry fruit with licorice and pepper spice bringing up the back end while the oak regime brings on tertiary vanilla notes. The finish is quite dry with firm tannins. Far from petite here this is perfect for fans of big wines. Enjoy now with an hour of decant time and or hold for another 2 years.
