"Stylish oak melds seamlessly with black raspberry and pomegranate on this medium bodied, rectilinear red. The main thrust is of tart red berry, cacao husk, and firm, ripe tannins, with sleek cocoa, vanilla, and spice box notes emerging toward the end."

"Bright dark nearly opaque dusty color. Bright, savory, fruity oaky aromas of raspberry toffee (Brach's), black currants, damson plums, and sandalwood with a bright, dry full body and a warming, medium-length finish with firm, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. Precise, complex etches flavors come on nicely and seamlessly melt into one another. good balance and length."
