Dark purple color. Ripe cherry and cassis aromas are complicated by sexy vanillin oak spices, cola and roasted coffee. Supple dark berry preserve flavors coat the palate, with late-arriving tannins adding gentle grip. A pliant, accessible style, with admirable sweetness, depth and finishing thrust-and no rough edges. I'd drink this seductive, seamless wine on the young side, for its luscious fruit.
