This wine is inky and alluring. The glass brims with dark bramble fruits and exotic spices. There is a rich undertone of umami and chocolate, balanced by a bright and lifted black raspberry and balsamic reduction. The palate layers in dark plum, dried fig, cocoa powder, black cherry and allspice. Overall, this wine is deep and mysterious, requiring a moment of thought and appreciation for things of density and character. Built on tannic structure, this wine will benefit from cellaring, and will need air and time to show fully.
