($35) Inky purple. Blackberry, cherry-cola, fresh herbs, pepper and licorice on the nose, plus hints of dried flowers and spice. Smooth and suave in the mouth, with a distinctly juicy quality and very good intensity to its fresh dark berry and floral flavors. This vinous, focused wine finishes with silky tannins and very good length.
