Dark ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the smoke-tinged nose, along with a suggestion of pungent flowers. Concentrated bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors slowly spread out and become sweeter with air. Decidedly rich, in the style of the vintage, but energetic as well, finishing very long and smooth, featuring repeating dark fruit character and smooth, harmonious tannins that lend grip.
