Aromas of candied blackberry and cherry mark the nose, lifted by plenty of pepper, violet and tilled earth accents. The medium-bodied palate is framed by a solid structure of rigid tannins and juicy acidity, with plush dark-fruit flavors and spice filling it out.
Mesquite smoke is a savory entry to this balanced, medium-bodied red, leading to flavors of dried cherry, Asian five-spice powder and Earl Grey tea. Fine tannins firm the aromatic finish. Drink now through 2023. 7,000 cases made.
