TASTING NOTES Aromas blackberries, butterscotch, and anise. Flavors of dark fruits, black cherry, and spice. Full bodied profile with plenty of grip and length. This wine was built for aging, but good luck trying to wait. A warm, dry spring and growing season resulted in a very early harvest in 2015. There was significantly less fruit than the year before (and annual average) but the concentration of flavors and tannins is much higher.
