"Brilliant violet color. Fresh red and dark berries, peppery spices and fresh flowers on the nose. Shows good energy and lift to its spicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors, which put on weight and turn sweeter with air. Plenty ripe but not at all heavy, this blend finishes with solid punch, smooth tannins and lingering black and blue fruits. -JR" –Mar 2016
