(2005 Vintage) Smoke, blackberry, stone, plum and fennel scents produce the aromatics. Medium/full bodied, with a fresh, zesty, tannic, spicy, black raspberry finish.
International Wine CellarHealthy bright ruby color. Perfumed, somewhat exotic aromas of black cherry, roasted nuts and bitter chocolate. Sweet and supple in the mouth, with ripe flavors and gentle texture. Flavors range from chocolate to mint. Finishes with ripe tannins and good length. Very successful for the vintage.
