Winemaker's Notes:

An exciting mixture of briary blackberry and black cherry fill the glass. Exotic spices intermingle with the lush berries. Intense is an understatement! On the palate, rich and well structured. A core of blackberry and raspberry envelope the midpalate. Layers of succulent dark fruits are beautifully balanced with acidity, spice and minerality. The alluring finish lingers with perfect elegance.
