"Bright violet color. Expressive aromas of black and blue fruits, licorice and candied flowers, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Round, supple and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated blueberry and cassis flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Shows impressive energy and power on the finish, which is shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins that are quickly absorbed by the wine's fruit. There's serious bang for the buck here."
