This red is dense yet lively. Blueberry and blackberry flavors mingle with espresso, leather and loamy earth notes, set in a polished texture and supported by firm tannins and fresh acidity.

Plenty of black pepper, brambleberry pie and elderberry reduction, as well as vanilla. Full-bodied and nicely structured, this may not be the most subtle of wines, but itâ€™s very drinkable and enjoyable.

Color: cherry, garnet rim.
Nose: aromatic coffee, fruit liqueur notes, spicy, fine reductive notes.
Palate: balanced, flavourful, good structure.

A dense, saturated nose weighs in as stout, which is fitting for a wine boasting 15% abv. Bold black fruit aromas pave the way to a rugged palate that's jagged with hard tannins. Black fruit flavors are deep, full and spicy, with toasty oak providing framing. On the finish, coffee and wood spice flavors dominate. Drink through 2027, preferably with beef or lamb.
