Flavor & Winemaking: Abundant fruit such as black cherries, elderberries, acai, pomegranate, and blackberry are the first things you notice. Then spice flavors kick in, with layers of warming (clove, vanilla) and peppery spices supported by a medium body and firm tannic dryness. Feels like it’s going to be quite serious from the first sip, but then ends up sliding into this really relaxed space and just drinking nice & smooth. -Sir Winemaker, Kevin Luther
