    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of lavender, violets, leather, black raspberries and black cherries. Flavors of black raspberries, black cherries and plums. Medium to bright acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold. I’d lean towards drink. In a really good place right now and ready to pop and pour in my opinion. (94 points)

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of kirsch, black pepper, soapstone and florals. Rich and juicy flavors of plums, berries and cherries.
