On the nose, it shows layers of lush, black cherry,
sweet plum, blackberries, wood
and a touch of cocoa. The flavors
are consistent with the aromas, having sweet cherry,
Marionberry, and mocha balancing a nice, spicy oak
component. The round, balanced mouthfeel provides
a richness that lasts
into the long finish of lush fruit and wood.
