Deep ruby-purple core with black hue, lightens to medium intensity at the rim with slow forming, moderately stained tears on the glass. Highly aromatic and very complex with a mix of red and black fruit of cherry and currant, cedar, vanilla, licorice and cinnamon spice with camphor and dry autumn leaf and graphite accents. Full-bodied and compelling with layers of fruit, spice and savory flavors that continue to unfold as the palate evolves. Red and black cherry and blackcurrant fruit layered with complex spice including vanilla, licorice cinnamon and cedar lead the entry. The mid-palate is showy with sustained, complex fruit, savory tobacco leaf and cocoa notes. The finish is fresh, long and complex with black cherry and camphor beautifully integrated with savory elements and framed with mouth-filling, fine tannins that balance the wine’s rich palate and predict a good future in the cellar.
