Brilliant ruby color. Spice- and smoke-tinged black/blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied licorice and violet. Lush and broad in the mouth, offering blueberry and bitter cherry flavors that unfold slowly as the wine opens up. Finishes jammy and long, showing good breadth and dusty, even tannins that sneak in late.
