Shimmering violet color. Intense dark berry and cherry qualities on the nose, with suggestions of candied flowers, licorice and smoky minerals building in the glass. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering intense, smoke-accented blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Sappy and impressively concentrated, finishing with powerful thrust, chewy tannins and strong, spice-tinged persistence.
