This wine opens with enticing aromas of black current, cassis, tobacco leaf, and leather on the nose then presents concentrated flavors of black cherry, mixed berries, tobacco, and baking spices once tasted. The wine exhibits a beautiful balance between fruit, oak, and alcohol. The wine also features the featherweight tannins and long soft finish that Vineyard 985 is known for. The wine is outstandingly approachable upon release but will perform well over the next 5 to 8 years.
