Tasting notes (Josh Raynolds) Vivid ruby-red. Intense blackcurrant, cherry pit and licorice aromas are complemented by hints of cola and black pepper. Sharply focused dark berry flavors are lifted by a jolt of smoky minerality and a repeating peppery note. Opens up slowly with aeration, picking up a floral quality that carries through a long, fruit-driven finish.
