Previously available for $13.00
Sweet, dark red fruit greets the nose with notes of licorice, dried herbs and sandy soil tones. This is fairly rich in the mouth with lots of dark cherry fruit paired with assertive yet integrated oak spice notes and a touch of early vanilla. There's a nice herbal note adding detail across the palate and fruit that gains a raspberry element along with leather and soil tones on the back end. This is a rich and fairly powerful wine with some wood tannins and succulent acidity that are well balanced by the rich fruit, which lingers on the moderately long, licorice- and tar-inflected finish that does show a touch of heat. 88pts
