Soft, downy and round, with sarsaparilla, baked cherry, raspberry jam and heaps of soft peppery spice. Tannins are well worn and the palate is soupy soft. This is Black Hills' 'entry level' blend, and this year sees syrah, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and (first time ever) carmenere. Soft and easy on the palate, with cola, cherry candies, ripe raspberries and a lick of spice on the short finish. Easy entry to red wines.
