($28) Bright full ruby. Cassis, black raspberry, violet and licorice on the very ripe nose; more floral than the Canoe Ridge Estate bottling but showed a lightly porty quality with extended aeration. Moderately sweet and suave on the palate, with noteworthy purity to the dark berry and menthol flavors. Not as open-knit today as the Canoe Ridge, and showing less in the way of obvious sweetness, but there's impressive texture and richness here. The tannins build on the back, reaching the incisors.
