Bright ruby-red. Musky black cherry, cassis, blackberry, licorice, mocha and toffee on the nose. Sweet, creamy and rich but powerful too, with an exotic oaky aspect to its black fruit and floral flavors. Seamless and enticing already, finishing with suave tannins and building sweet berry and sexy oak flavors. I find this wonderfully open-knit for a wine made from very small bunches and a yield of around two tons per acre. Winemaker Weertz vinifies this in an upright Demptos fermenter, as with the Legacy bottling.
