Sweet and oaky aromatics with vanilla and burnt sugar fill the nose. A silky and weighted body features tanned leather and ripe but not overly sweet flavors of red plum, cherry and anise. The lingering finish showcases round tannins, toasty oak, allspice and boysenberry. Attractive deep plums and mulberries with a gently earthy and spicy edge. Nicely ripened. The palate has a supple, smooth and fleshy texture, plenty of spiced plums and easygoing tannins. This is a nice full bodied red with awesome mouthfeel and texture.
