Inky purple. Drop-dead sexy aromas of blackberry liqueur, candied cherry, violet and incense, with suave spice notes gaining strength with air. Seamless and expansive in the mouth, offering sweet dark berry and violet pastille flavors and a pliant, velour-like texture. Soft tannins arrive late and add shape to the very long, sappy, subtly smoky finish. The depth of fruit here is impressive. These vines, which sit at 1,440 meters, were reportedly planted in 1912.
