($94) Deep purple with a bright rim. Highly aromatic bouquet of blackberry liqueur, cassis, cured tobacco, candied licorice and floral oils, plus a peppery overtone; smells like an essence of cabernet. Vibrant, palate-staining dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are given spine by tangy acidity, with supple tannins lending shape. The floral and tobacco notes come back strong on the sappy, penetrating, very long finish. For a rich wine this is awfully lively. I'd hold onto it for at least another six years before popping a cork but it's undeniably sexy now.
