Brilliant ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented red fruits and candied flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering juicy, appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that deepen with aeration. Shows good energy and silky texture on a very long, spicy finish framed by supple, harmonious tannins. This graceful wine should show well on the young side but has the balance to age gracefully as well.
