Black licorice, smoke, lead, sweet tobacco, rosemary, currant and dusty barnyard scents on the enticing, savory nose. Scents transition seamlessly with blackberry, black tea and minerals added to the suave, dense, chewy palate. This is fucking good. Finishes long and dry with firm acidity carrying the black fruits, mineral and tea flavors. 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. $59.99
