Aroma: The slow ripening and cooler temperatures preserved beautiful fresh fruit aromas of blueberry and, boysenberry. Scents of dark chocolate, coffee, nutmeg, vanilla and black pepper also introduce the wine. Mouthfeel: This vintage of Tribute really exceeds all other years in sheer enjoyment. The entry of the wine is rich and full with an almost sweetness to it. The tannins engage immediately; layer after layer of velvet, silk and chalk. The finish is round and smooth.
