Lively aromatics of cherry, violet, and licorice introduce a heady, velvety palate of cherry pie, chocolate and leather with a generous clove and cedar spice on the finish.
Deep magenta. Vibrant, spice- and mineral-accented mulberry and raspberry scents show fine clarity and pick up hints of incense, topsoil and cola with air. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering intense red and blue fruit, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that smoothly meld depth and vivacity. Fine-grained, even tannins lend gentle grip to an impressively long, smooth finish that echoes the blue fruit and floral notes with authority.
