86
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Pours ruby red with magenta glints in the glass. On the nose, it’s blackberry cobbler and milk chocolate. Tart blue fruit in mouth and vanilla come through on the palate with hints of polished leather saddle and bitter dark chocolate. Integrated acids and tannins.
