The aromas are bright, ripe, and forward with a strong concentration of blackberry and anise with vanilla and oak integration.
The palate is dominated by ripe, sweet berry and cedar-oak qualities. The flavors are long and round, finishing with firm, pleasant tannins. This well integrated wine shows silkiness and finesse with overall balance and harmony.
