"A rich undertow of wood smoke and loamy earth accents the flavors of dried raspberry, Earl Grey tea, espresso cream and date in this well-knit, medium- to full-bodied red. Fresh and focused, with fine-grained tannins firming the spiced finish. Drink now through 2027. 300 cases made, 100 cases imported. "
