Light ruby-red. Deeply perfumed aromas of fresh dark fruits, incense and Asian spices pick up a minerally element with aeration. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering sappy blackberry, cola and violet pastille flavors that show very good focus and spicy lift. Conveys a suave mix of power and finesse and finishes very long and smoky, with a hint of vanilla and silky tannins lending shape and grip.
