Bursting concentrated black fruit aromas and flavors, harmonious balance and impressive acidity. I loved the full-bodied blackberry, black cherry and currant aromas and flavors along with the fresh, undiffused acidity – two words in my notes that I wrote in all caps: Vibrant, alive. The mouthfeel was luxurious and silky smooth, and the raisin and pie spice finish was lengthy and ambrosial – an outstanding wine.
