Youthful violet. Ripe cherries and dark berries on the deeply perfumed nose. Shows impressive power and depth on the palate, offering ripe blackberry and candied cherry flavors complicated by hints of candied lavender and licorice. The smooth, youthfully tannic, smoke-tinged finish delivers solid punch and leaves sappy cherry and floral notes behind.
