Review:
Dark violet. A highly perfumed, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe cherry, boysenberry and licorice, along with a floral overtone and a hint of smokiness. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering appealingly sweet red and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors and a hint of exotic spices. The impressively long, floral-tinged finish is framed by fine-grained tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's energetic fruit.
