Glass-staining purple. Spicy blackberry and cherry-cola on the nose, with sexy floral and smoky mineral qualities gaining power with air. Deep, forceful dark fruit flavors coat the palate and are framed by gently chewy tannins. The floral and mineral notes build on the finish, which delivers solid punch and betrays no rough edges. These tannins are really suave.
