Tasting notes:

Aromatics of dusty rose, roasted almonds and licorice welcome the nose while an inviting array of brambly flavors of blackberry, currant jam and raspberries persist on the mouth accented with dabs French oak and creme brulee. The tannins are silken and plentiful ending with bitter chocolate, black mission fig and a smidgen of serrano pepper.
