The soft and round mouth feel is opulent with flavors of chocolate, roasted almonds and blackberry. A slight essence of licorice remains on the palate through a long and rich finish.
Plan to have a bottle or two on hand for a mixed grill platter of sausages, chicken and tri-tip. - Richard B. Sayre, Winemaker
