Earthy & Spicy
I placed a search for a Deep Jam like flavor and the Winemakers notes stated - The fruit profile opens with fresh blackberries and black cherry, followed by ripe raspberry jam. More subtle aromas of currants, licorice, black pepper and spice. Entry on the palate is a burst of berries, followed by spices and ripe fruit sweetness. Well, I certainly got the Black Pepper but it was so forward on the tongue and it lingered so long on the palate that I could taste nothing but. If you like a True Grit Bite then this wine is for you; however if you like a jam like flavor on the front of your tongue with a bittersweet chocolate flavor and a round finish this wine is NOT for you. And it's NOT for me.
