Glistening magenta. Fresh, spice-accented red berries, cherry, incense and candied flowers on the seductively perfumed nose. A smoky mineral accent adds vivacity to sappy, alluringly sweet raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors sharpened by a zesty white pepper nuance. Fine-grained and seamless in texture, finishing with impressive power, a hint of smokiness and smooth, polished tannins. 25% new oak.
