Deep ruby in color. Explosive aromas of wild black fruits, bramble, and spice. Sumptuous, bold, and deeply layered with black cherry and chocolate-covered strawberry fruit, licorice, and dried herbs. Bright red cherry and strawberry, with hints of rooibos tea and spice box. Beautiful density and supple mouthfeel, melding into fine tannins. A beauty, with or without food, that has several more good years in it.
