Wonderfully aromatic, notes of strawberries, mushrooms, smoky oak and a hint of fall spice are followed by a rich, round and luscious mouthfeel with loads of ripe strawberry-red raspberry fruit, black cherries, and earth. Fine tannins and bright acidity along with layers of flavor make for excellent complexity ending with a long spice-cabinet finish.
