(From 2010 Vintage) Opaque purple color as well as a gorgeous perfume of scorched earth/burning embers, blueberries, black currant liqueur and crushed rocks. Full and opulent with nobility, finesse, purity and elegance,
Saturated red-ruby color. Rather reticent aromas of superripe red berries, iodine and damp earth, plus port-like suggestions of medicinal austerity and raisin.
