Review

Glass-staining purple.  Heady aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, licorice, Indian spices and woodsmoke, with a sexy floral nuance emerging with aeration.  Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense, concentrated blueberry and cherry flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity.  Clings with outstanding persistence and harmonious tannins, leaving smoke and bitter cherry notes behind.
