Deep ruby. A wild, expansive bouquet displays ripe cherry and blackberry scents complicated by suggestions of candied flowers, smoked meat and spicecake. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that tighten up and become spicier on the back half. Smoothly plays power off finesse and finishes with outstanding persistence and youthful tannic grip.
