A dense and dark nose offering blackberry, acai berry, allspice and a touch of vanilla. This almost melts as it hits the palate with flavors of blueberry, plums, dried fig and a touch of mocha. The mid palate is lush and powerful, yet finishes with a gentle grip making the perfect wine for enjoying now or laying down for a few more years.
