The aromas of black cherry, wild boysenberry, plum, sassafras and shiitake mushrooms are quite prominent in the glass. On the palate, the rich, broad tannins are met by focused flavors of berry and exotic spice. Young, yet sophisticated and sexy.

Bright ruby. Ripe cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by notes of anise and smoky Indian spices. Broad and concentrated, with more power than the Westside Road Neighbors bottling offering sweet red and dark berry flavors, a velvety texture and a touch of bitter chocolate. Becomes spicier on the finish, which is firmed by fine-grained tannins.
