Scaling this wine will take more than a rope and a carabiner! Once you reach the top, close your eyes and slowly take in the scent of charcoal smoke and baking spice intertwined with black cherry cola and a touch of pencil lead. Bathing the palate is a juicy mountain of blackberries, blueberries and black pepper while cigar box spice climbs to the top of this Cliff of Insanity. Charcoal and a black fruit finish cling to the summit like a thunderhead cloud.
