Bountiful, Burgundian bouquet laced with eucalyptus, earth, dried herbs and black tea while lending flavors of bright cherry concentrate, vanilla and a dash of clove upon the palate. This wine is quite wild. It differs so much between the Old World bouquet and the extremely juicy, young, thick fruit in the mouth, but with Mr. Claypool navigating the vessel, I would not expect anything less. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
