Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Layers of red and black fruits playfully intertwine with undertones of smoke and vanilla on the nose. Gorged red berries and ripe strawberries match with chocolate, toasted oak, and confected blueberry before finishing sweet and soft. (Jun 2016)
It has quite a bit of complexity on the nose, with aromas of nutmeg, vanilla, black cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate. The palate is brimming with ripe fruit flavors like black cherry, plum and a hint of strawberry toward the finish. A touch of vanilla also comes in on the finish. The mouth feel is fantastic, with tannins that are just enough to give a slight velvety texture to the wine and the acid is just enough to balance the sweetness of the fruit.
