- Heavy blackberry flavors and note slight burning of alcohol- I bet this could be higher than 14.5% as noted on the bottle. I can taste quite a bit of cedar - no complaints just seems more than normal. The color is deep and rich which give way to a great complex and delightful wine. Side notes: "Grown, Produced, Bottle by", Trinity County (north CA), Purchased at Ryan's Wines & Spirits. Very good!
