Winemaker's Notes:

Blackberry, smokey, cherry, green tea, orange peel, and anise spice provide a complex array of aromas. The palate is greeted by broad, forward berry fruit, tea an anise, and sweet vanillin with lingering fruit in the finish. The framework of focused acidity and round tannins provide excellent structure.
My Notes:
