Brilliant ruby.  Potent, mineral-laced dark berry and floral scents are complemented by suggestions of licorice and black tea.  Intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors pick up a smoky nuance with air.  The mineral note comes back on the finish, which features dusty tannins and a sexy violet pastille quality.  I really like this wine's focus.
