Brilliant ruby. Spice- and smoke-accented red berries, cola and a hint of licorice on the deeply perfumed nose. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering cherry liqueur and black raspberry flavors that gain lift and definition from a spine of zesty minerality. Picks up a sexy floral quality on the impressively persistent finish, which is shaped by supple, slow-building tannins.
