(made from a blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% monastrall; 15.5% alcohol): Inky purple. Dark berry preserves, cola, smoky oak and sandalwood on the intensely scented nose. Weighty and broad, with unlikely vivacity to its ripe blueberry and cherry compote flavors. Toasty, sweet and velvety in texture, with superb finishing thrust and persistent sweetness. This exotic, velour-like wine gains spiciness and floral character with air, and shows a suave blend of fruit and tannins; it should be even better with a few years of bottle age.
