Jammy and briary berry aromas are accented with vanilla and baking spices. Ripe, rich blackberry jam with notes of black currant on the palate; complimented by red and black pepper spice and dark chocolate. Soft tannins, balanced acidity and light toasty oak frame the finish.
Very nicely focused blackberry fruit filled out by notes of sweet spice and hints of blueberry pie start this full-bodied, balanced offering out in the right direction, and its somewhat fleshy, full and rich flavors keep it going. It is relatively open for a wine of the vintage, and while it can certainly benefit from a few years of bottle aging, it does not demand it. Tasty and versatile, it will be equally at home with pastas and with pork roasts. GOOD VALUE
