The spice is pretty heavy on the nose of this wine. It’s loaded with nutmeg, clove, toasted oak and vanilla. That’s backed up by plenty of blackberry, blueberry and plum, although I can’t say it’s entirely harmonious. It’s a little clumsy, but still enjoyable. The palate is full of ripe fruit flavors, such as blackberry, plum and black currant. There are also some coffee notes on the palate. The finish is rather spicy, but still has plenty of berry flavors. The acidity is good as are the tannins. It’s a drinkable and enjoyable wine, although the balance is a little off.
