from a private cellar Superb Level Deep, completely opaque black cherry color. Somewhat restrained, but also quite attractive and nuanced nose with ripe aromas of perfumed floral tones, overripe boysenberries, a little bit of alcohol, a hint of ginja cherry liqueur and a touch of sweet bilberry. The wine is smooth, sweet and full-bodied, yet surprisingly fresh and playful on the palate with rich flavors of youthful, jammied dark berries, some bittersweet dark chocolate, a little bit of raw cocoa, a hint of freshly picked ripe boysenberries and a subtle touch of aguardente. Structure-wise the is very balanced with medium-to-moderate acidity and quite ample, yet also quite mellow and round tannins. The finish is quite sweet and nuanced with intermingling flavors of ripe blackberries, some blackberry jam, a little bit of sweet boysenberries, a hint of cooling herbal notes of mint or eucalyptus, a touch of fresh black raspberries and a gentle touch of alcohol warmth.
