Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - The deep and dark aromas call to mind cocoa dusted cranberries alongside wild thyme and rosemary. Hints of pine and dark berries turn to gentle nutmeg and bittersweet chocolate. Gentle tannins are supple, creating a soft texture. (Jun 2016)
Aromas of black cherries, fresh plums, violet and dark chocolate overwhelm the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is layered with fresh bing cherries, baked plums, and mocha, softened by its delicate, almost luxurious texture, and given staying power with a long, raspberry and cocoa powder finish.
