Previously available for $14.36
Damson plums, dried flowers, dried herbs old leather and medicinal tinged aromas of mint and licorice fill the glass along with a touch of VA. Decidedly supple if still bright in the mouth, the tannins have really integrated very well here leaving lots of plummy fruit and coffee and spice toned oak flavors to saturate the palate. This still remains a rather taut wine, though with plenty of buffering material so it’s nothing but caressing in the mouth. The flavors are deep if subtle, showing lots of black spice and cherry fruit on the finish before finishing with some spicy wood tannins. Lovely but a bit too refined. 88pts
