($40; made by Sarah and Sparky Marquis) Inky ruby color. Assertive and powerful nose shows blackberry, creme de cassis, cola, vanilla, dark chocolate and molasses aromas. Explosively ripe, almost sweet on the palate, with flavors of dark berry and plum liqueur, raspberry jam and chocolate building and expanding through the finish. There are sizable tannins here but the fruit completely overwhelms any rough edges. For the category, this is a solid value. (Vine St. Imports, Philadelphia, PA)Author: Josh Raynolds
