Bright ruby-red. Heady aromas of candied cherry, sassafras, potpourri and smoky Indian spices. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors and suggestions of cola, allspice and floral pastilles. Becomes sweeter with air and finishes with superb clarity, energy and spicy persistence. Very sexy now but this impressively dense and balanced wine is built to age.
