“Medium ruby-red. Bright, slightly high-toned aromas of black cherry, cassis, licorice and violet, plus a hint of fig. Supple on entry, then moderately sweet and firmly structured, showing a creaminess of texture to the dark berry and spicy oak flavors."
Saturated medium ruby. Sexy oak lifts the aromas of blackberry, chocolate mint, mocha and espresso. Sweet and suave, with ripe acidity giving a penetrating quality to the dark fruit and exotic spice flavors. Quite firmly built, even a bit youthfully hard-edged. This will need time to resolve its oak element, which is quite pronounced on the back end.
