Akme Cellars The Almanac 2013

A very bold and full bodied red wine, this wine displays the classic black raspberry, rich blackberry in the briar patch with balanced tones of cured meats, all spice and pepper. There are also hints of coffee, mocha and white pepper spice in the nose. The pure wild raspberry tar and spicy oak coat your palate along with a slight indication of espresso and fresh Brown Turkey figs in the background. With the addition of 5% – 10% new oak, the tannins finish much broader and lush across your palate. Enjoy now through 2020.
