Ruby-red. Heady, expansive aromas of dark berries, cherry-cola, Asian spices and musky herbs, with a floral overtone. Stains the palate with intense blackberry and cherry compote flavors and shows very good energy and lift. Tannins come on late and fold smoothly into the wine's bright, densely packed fruit. Rich but lively, even graceful, with excellent finishing clarity, vibrancy and persistence.
