Inky ruby. Heady cherry and dark berry preserve scents show outstanding clarity and complementary smoky mineral and spice accents. Deep-pitched black currant and bitter cherry flavors deliver a suave blend of power and finesse, and a suave pastille flourish lends complexity. Shows impressive energy and spicy thrust on the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of candied flowers and sappy dark berries.
