Blackcurrant & Tobacco
Robust notes of blackcurrant, stewed plum, tobacco leaf and stony minerality are balanced by grippy, yet fine-grained tannins. Its opaque core is filled with dark berry and cassis and can be enjoyed now or aged for future appreciation. It is an outstanding example of Washington fruit crafted like a Bordeaux-style blend.
