13.9% alc., $24.99. WW 90. · First bottle: Light reddish-purple hue in the glass. Aromas of black cherry and cola, veering to the overripe side, with hints of charcoal and oak. Mid weight core of black raspberry and black cherry fruit with some green oak in the background, finishing with a prominent cut of acidity. Drinkable, but no message. Decent.

Light and elegant with prominent acidity, featuring flavors of deep red cherries and berries with noticeable oak and stem in the background. Decent at best. Reviewed October 2, 2012 ARTICLE »
