"Brilliant ruby. Blueberry, roasted coffee, blackberry and woodsmoke on the perfumed nose. Densely packed and sappy, with very good intensity to its candied plum, spicecake and mineral flavors. The suave, expansive finish is enlivened by juicy acidity, giving this rich wine a surprisingly light touch. Finishes with smooth, harmonious tannins and resonating spiciness."
