Black ruby color. Oaky aromas of peppercorns, latex, rosebush, rhubarb, serrano ham, dill, and blackberry jam with a coarse, vibrant, fruity sweet medium body and a hot, stimulating, medium-long raspberry liqueur and bacon jam finish with chalky tannins and heavy oak flavor. A digestif-like port-style wine with intense oak and concentrated fruit.
