Winemaker's Notes:

Richly concentrated blackberry and raspberry fruit aromas accented by delicate violet and rose petal. A subtle and pleasing minerality helps to complement the lush briary fruit. On the palate, an abundance of black currant and wild berries. The opulent berry flavor drenches the palate. The middle softens to fig and sea-salted caramel, with restrained spice, intermingling to provide a long and decadent finish.
My Notes:
