A dense and pretty red with lots of boysenberry character and spices plus hints of cloves and peppers. Full body, soft and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.
Good full bright red. Sexy aromas of red cherry, violet, tobacco and a hint of marzipan. Fresh and flavorful, offering easygoing flavors of dark berries and plum complicated by hints of licorice and tobacco. Long and bright on the floral finish. Silkier and fresher than the overripe 2012 Il Moro.
