Tasting Note

Deep red. Primary aromas of blackberry and boysenberry are highlighted with elements of couverture chocolate and freshly turned soil. The full-bodied palate is brimming with ripe, black berry fruit, complemented with fine tannins, an earthy minerality and savoury notes. A perfectly balanced and seamlessly integrated wine that expresses the essence of the vine, the time, the place and the harsh, black cracking clay over limestone soils that make up this unique corner of the Davey Estate Vineyard.

* No animal products are used in the production of this wine.

*Released under the "Davey Family" label in Total Wine & More, USA.
