Impenetrable colour, and whilst dark and brooding in character, the wine offers glimpses of vibrant fresh blackberry, vine sap and bitter chocolate; the palate is full-bodied and powerful, with a brightness and floral note that engages, and acidity that lingers evenly on the finish; power with restraint.

Explosive aromas of blackberry and boysenberry, with complicating notes of licorice and violet. Sappy, rich and structured, with compellingly rich dark fruit flavors and building tannins. This sweet, layered wine is slow to unfold. Shows serious power on the finish, which leaves notes of floral pastilles, vanilla and licorice behind. I'd let this primary wine rest for at least a few more years. 93+ - Josh Raynolds
