Deep purple garnet color with aromas of violets, liquorice, cloves and blackberry. Wine has medium weight and smooth rounded tannins to compliment the juicy sweet ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit with fresh anise undertones. The wine finishes with lightly smoky spice and a lingering vanilla warmth.
A warm vintage that produced ripe fruit translating into fruit forward aromatic wines. Yields were average and as were tannin levels producing smooth, rounded wines packed with varietal aromas and flavorful fruit character in the mouth.
