Glass-staining ruby. Dark berries and potpourri on the highly fragrant nose. Ripe and fleshy on entry, then firmer in the mid-palate, offering blackberry and blueberry flavors that show an exotic quality. Closes on a sweet note, with seamless texture and very good fruit-driven persistence.
Dark purple. An expressive bouquet offers blackberry, flowers and an exotic note of apricot. Juicy, expansive dark berry flavors are lifted by tangy acidity but show no rough edges. A borderline fruit bomb that shows a lot of sweet, forward fruit; the finish is smooth, sweet and nicely persistent. (Volubilis Import, Inc., San Diego, CA)
