Review:
Deep, brilliant violet. Mineral-accented cherry and dark berry liqueur aromas are complicated by hints of candied flowers and licorice. Supple and broad on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that turn livelier as the wine stretches out. A suave floral pastille note comes up on the broad, clinging finish, which shows sharp clarity and rounded tannins.
