"Aromas of roasted blackberry, coffee, açaí and purple flowers make for a wonderful mix on the nose of this red blend. There's a hint of sweet caramel cream on the palate alongside blackberry foam, lifted by pinches of thyme and other roasting herbs. It is a complete and powerful red wine." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Luxurious, expansive and layered to the point of hyper-complexity, the 2016 Westerly Fletcher's Red is a nearly amorous multi-layered palate experience, combining slickly-textured black fruits, enticing barrel influences and additional notes of purple flower potpourri. Every berry in the dark fruit lexicon makes an appearance and takes a bow, surrounded by vanilla, sweet baking spice and oak char, and while the initial sexy impressions of the encompassing mouthfeel act as a gateway to firmer structural elements, a year or two of patient cellaring or a lengthy decant will coax out the suppler aspects in the finish that desire to present themselves. It's quite a whopping mouthful that will prompt a "wow."
