Dark ruby in the glass with a violet rim. An alluring, rich mix of ripe black currants and berries faceted with vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa highlights. Full bodied, complex black fruit of lush currants, and cherry layered with licorice and vanilla spice with chocolate, roasted coffee, and tobacco. The finish is extremely long and complex, showing firm plush tannins that bring everything together making it easy to drink it now, but implying a great future.
"Offers a tight, generous mix of raspberry, wild berry and pomegranate. This is pure and focused, gaining depth and velocity, ending with a long, persistent finish."
"A firm, steady heartbeat of violets (on both the nose and the palate). A love triangle of balance, round tannins and a black, juicy luscious fruit. An espresso latte mint expressiveness denotes some of the back story: cellared 24 months in French oak. Unfined and unfiltered."
