FREEEEDOM!!! This wine is named after the maiden name of the winemaker’s wife but it’s a pretty big, bold, bada$$ wine for $20 so I’m going to associate it with Braveheart as well, given the Scottish thistles on the label. Rich, sweet blackberries, black cherries, dried cherries, dark chocolate, green olives, cinnamon, and leather on the nose. Both savory and fruity on the palate - plums, blackberries, and cherries with olives, pastrami rind, clove, sweetspice. Almost like the fruit that’s left and slightly dried on the top of a jar of mixed berry preserves. The alcohol feels like sweetness on the palate. Pretty fierce stuff!
