Bright violet. Pungent black and blue fruit, smoky bacon and licorice aromas, along with exotic spice and mineral flourishes. Juicy blueberry and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity and deepen steadily with aeration. Shows the richness of the year and finishes very long and smooth, with supple tannins framing lingering dark fruit notes. Raised in concrete tanks.
