The aromas of wild blackberries, forest floor, Asian spices and minerals direct the nose in this vintage. Concentrated flavors of cherries, blackberry cobbler, and anise are complimented by chewy grape tannins and soft, toasted oak on the finish. This is a focused wine with much more complexity than in the past. The Weir Vineyard seems to come into its own within 5-6 years.
"Deep ruby. Highly expressive aromas of blackberry, Asian spices, cola and lavender, with a touch of licorice adding depth. Penetrating and precise, with energetic dark berry and bitter cherry flavors staining the palate. Chewy tannins add grip and structure to the very long, spicy and sharply focused finish."
