On the nose I get some really nice and jammy wild strawberry, raspberry, licorice rope, bramble berry, and some spice and oak.
On the palate the wine has great concentration and power on the mid-palate and expresses flavors of blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, raspberry, and black currant preserves. There is also a touch of black licorice on the finish which I find very nice.
This is really a nice effort and a stunning wine for the dollar. I can't see it pairing too well with food but it's a fantastic stand-alone red. 89 points
