Give a swirl, inhale a powerful nose of blackberry, cassis, and the richness of dark ripe fruit falling onto scorched earth. Add a touch of sage and hot green peppers from the garden. Along with all these complex and layered flavors on the palate, add black cherry with a tinge of cayenne on the finish. Sturdy tannins will mellow but don’t let that stop you. This wine is going somewhere. And it should be with you.
