"(raised in a combination of new and used French oak barrels) Lurid magenta. Expansive aromas of fresh boysenberry, black raspberry, incense and spicecake. Sweet, seamless and concentrated on the palate, offering intense dark fruit liqueur and lavender pastille flavors and suggestions of licorice and vanilla that build with air. In a generous style, but there's more than adequate structure to this wine as well. Silky, even tannins add shape to the energetic finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity."
