Lively bright red berries on the tongue with intriguing hints of sweet tobacco, anise, clove and kirsch. Full bodied, with a formidable backbone of chewy, mouth-coating tannins, this is a wine that envelopes your palate. Smoky and somewhat brooding, this wine shows the power of the Seavey estate and makes a strong statement about the monumental 2013 vintage.
