($32; for 500 ml.; made from the Olivares' oldest, ungrafted vines) Opaque purple. Succulent dark berry preserve and candied blueberry on the nose, with hints of violet and smoked meat adding complexity. Sweet and expansive but focused, with tangy acidity buffering the lush, sappy black and blue fruit flavors. Very sweet but surprisingly light on its feet, with excellent finishing punch and lingering spiciness. This wine's blend of decadent sweetness and vivacity is always intriguing.
