Previously available for $15.00
A bit stemmy and herbal on the nose in an attractive way with hints of red hots candy and medicinal licorice tones framing floral tinged black fruits. A touch weighty in the mouth, this has the hint of red hots and a really detailed streak of slightly bitter and medicinal licorice from the nose along with pepper black fruit on the palate. Integrated acids and ripe tannins lend this a smooth but not seamless feel in the mouth. Black tea and spice shows up on the backend along with lovely blackberry flavors that are not terribly long lived. A bit short on the minty finish though with some nice mineral accents and a mouth watering finale. Complex, nuanced and elegant though a bit shy on fruit, not that that is necessarily a bad thing. 89pts
