Inky ruby. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of dark berry preserves and incense, with suave vanilla and woodsmoke nuances adding complexity. Plush and open-knit, showing impressive depth to its sweet, densely packed black and blue fruit flavors. Nicely braced by juicy acidity. The smoky note lingers on the gently tannic, sweet finish, which shows superb energy, power and thrust.
