Vivid purple. Sexy, heady scents of candied red fruits, potpourri and incense, with a spicy topnote and a hint of vanilla. Lush and expansive, offering pliant red fruit preserve flavors that take on weight with air. Supple tannins build on an extremely long, sweet, mineral-driven finish. Very suave for the vintage, with surprising upfront appeal but with the depth and power to age.
