Brilliant red. Sexy, spice-accented red berry preserve and floral pastille scents are sharpened by hints of blood orange and smoky minerals. Sweet and seamless in the mouth; juicy acidity gives spine and focus to intense raspberry, candied rose and cherry cola flavors. Shows very good depth and no rough edges, and finishes with excellent clarity, harmonious tannins and strong, floral-tinged persistence.
