Boysenberry, plum, dark chocolate, black olive aromas with an interesting earthiness that almost seems slightly corked, but upon tasting, isn’t TCA. Really comes alive in the mouth with nice full texture running through the mid-palate of tingling cherry and other huge fruit flavors, finishing extremely smooth with complex flavors that build then temper over minutes. All the sweetness seems to be fruit-driven and nicely balanced, still intact after 7 years. A very nice effort that paired well with smoked turkey sausage.
The nose is Sauerbraten, I shit you not. Sweet upon entry but fills out with sharper grape, cherry, wild berry, and herb flavors. Medium to long finish that fills your whole mouth. Killer value. I can't believe the sauerbraten. It reminds me of the kitchen in my home growing up, only it comes from a delicious red wine.
