(60% monastrell, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 10% syrah; raised in new French and American oak for 18 months): Dark purple. Mellow, oak-spiced aromas of cassis, licorice and mocha, with coconut and vanilla accents. Lush and sweet, offering weighty dark fruit liqueur flavors and notes of candied violet and vanilla bean. Finishes spicy and long, with lingering smokiness and a strong vanilla quality. Give this rich wine some time to absorb its oak.
