The BOYANCI exhibits primary aromas of blackberry, raspberry, white pepper, bittersweet chocolate and brown sugar with blueberry, violet and mineral characters as well. With a little time in the glass subtle caramel and vanilla characters surface along with a hint of licorice. Initial impact of flavor in the mouth is intense and deep and continues through mid palate and finish, with a hefty yet suave structure. The 2009 BOYANCI flavors all open up to mirror the complexity of the aromatics.
