Opaque ruby. Seductive, mineral-accented aromas of blueberry preserves, cherry cola, violet and olive paste and a smoky mineral topnote. Dark berry liqueur flavors provide excellent energy, breadth and depth, displaying a subtle vanilla accent and building spiciness. Plays richness off vivacity with a sure hand and shows no excess weight. Finishes with impressively persistent black and blue fruit notes, velvety tannins and strong, spicy persistence.
