Opaque ruby. Aromas of black and blue fruits, candied violet, espresso and star anise, complemented by a smoky overtone. Broad, palate-staining dark fruit flavors show impressive intensity and pick up exotic floral and fruitcake qualities with air. A sneaky mineral note adds lift and cut to the long, sappy, smoke-accented finish. This hefty, ageworthy wine really shouldn't be opened for a while.
