International Wine CellarDeep, dark red. Heady, primary aromas of ripe blackcurrant, raspberry, red cherry and dark plum handsomely matched by assertive smoky chocolate, ground coffee and vanillin oak aromas. Very floral and spicy, stacked with cloves and nutmeg. Plump but elegant and harmonious palate, with a sumptuous, creamy, velvet-smooth and unashamedly oaky palate bursting with cherry/berry flavors and interwoven with fine tannins. Lively and not at all cooked; carries its 14.5% alcohol with ease.
