(includes 3% co-fermented viognier; 12.6% alcohol): Deep ruby. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of candied dark berries, licorice and smoky Indian spices, with a sexy lavender nuance building with air. Juicy, penetrating and sweet, offering intense blackberry and mulberry flavors and a suggestion of candied flowers. Closes on a sweet note, with excellent length, leaving dark fruit and peppery spice notes behind. This wine was made with 35% whole clusters.
