A full bodied red with aromatics of dark fruits – highlighting blackberries and boysenberry.   On the palate, the dark berries give way to a “bacon-spice concoction”.  Dried leather makes an appearance, as do dates, dried figs, cinnamon and clove and peppercorn.  This mélange closes with a finish of blueberry, blackberry and peppercorns.  The texture/mouthfeel of this wine is lifted, similar to a northern Rhône/Cote Rôtie provenance.
