Dark red. Deep, dark aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, baking spices, cocoa powder and licorice; showed higher-pitched mint and violet notes with extended aeration. Rich and deep but not at all heavy, with lovely inner-palate lift to the fruit, licorice, spice and game flavors. Dense, lively wine with excellent palate presence. Finishes with suave tannins and noteworthy persistence. This lost some of its impression of breadth with time in the recorked bottle but remained very fresh.
