TASTING NOTE: Ripe and flattering, with a silky texture to the layers of boysenberry and raspberry fruit, liberally inlaid with red licorice and roasted apple wood notes. The long finish lets a violet hint check in. This should unwind pleasantly. Best from 2016 through 2024. Score - 92 (James Molesworth, winespectator.com, Nov. 15, 2015) Price $ 44.95
