Initially there are dates, figs, and plums which give way to blueberry, dark cherry, and blackberry. The fruits are enveloped in dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Next to the dark chocolate covered fruits is a lovely floral and fresh herb nuance. The oak comes through just enough to balance out the bold fruits. The tannins are firm yet approachable. All these attributes create a finish that is expressive, bold, and well-integrated.
