Medium red. Powerfully scented bouquet of raspberry, cherry and blueberry, complicated by gingerbread, black tea and espresso. Juicy, densely packed red and dark berry flavors are enlivened by zesty acidity, which leavens the sheer sweetness of the fruit. Admirably fresh and balanced for such a big, deep, dense and full-flavored wine. Leaves a strong impression of candied dark berry flavors in its wake. This would be great with smoked brisket.
