Aromas of smoke, chocolate, meat and spice follow through to a full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. Full-throttle. Yet stylish.

Inky ruby. Vivid dark berry and cherry pit scents are lifted by suggestions of smoky minerals and fresh flowers. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering intense blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors and a jolt of peppery spices. Puts on weight with air and finishes sappy and long, with building spiciness and gently gripping tannins.”
