Winemaker's tasting note:
Initially, there are notes of blackberry and raspberry on the nose, with hints of white pepper and bacon fat. On the palate, there are dark fruits, roasted meats and a hint of anise on the finish. The textures are round and seductive with amazing verve. ~ Russell Bevan, Winemaker
