(AG92) Bright purple. Explosive, oak-spiced boysenberry and blueberry aromas, with candied lavender and vanilla qualities coming up with air. Lush, weighty and seamless on the palate, showing impressive focus and thrust to its dark berry liqueur, cherry-vanilla and floral pastille flavors. Finishes spicy, round and very long, with smooth tannins and repeating florality. This distinctly suave, approachable wine spent 15 months in French and American oak barrels.
