Concentrated flavors of blackberry, cocoa and coffee add to the lushness of this wine. The wine displays enticing dark berry, blackberry, black cherry, plum and classic briery jammy aromas, with hints of mocha, cedar and vanilla beans. Dark fruits, plum, raspberry jam and spicy oak coat the palate, interspersed with five-spice, espresso and cracked pepper. A hint of lavender adds to the complexity of the nose. A very soft entry leads into berries and cinnamon and an elegant finish with a touch of mocha. Vibrant acidity associated with the cool year aids the freshness of this wine which will continue to develop in bottle.
