Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Dark and subtly smoky with aromas of warm blackberry, creme de cacao, bacon fat, and candied orange peel. Fresh and creamy reminiscent of strawberry yogurt with a balanced touch of pepper to give it structure.
Broad and generous, open-textured and inviting, with cherry, currant and red plum flavors that swirl enticingly around the fine-grained tannins and creamy oak on the finish. Drink now through 2018.-H.S. (Oct 19 2016)
