“A beautiful bouquet of black raspberry, pomegranate, rose hips, violets, acai black tea and hints of cloves. The wild blackberry front leads to a full mouth of cassis, black raspberry, blueberry and hints of fresh tea leaf. The layers of complexity in the mid-palate are enhanced by young, elegant tannins delivering a weightless, yet concentrated finish of exceptional length.” ~ Marbue Marke, September 2017
