Exhibits an inky/ruby/purple color along with a gorgeous perfume of smoke, blueberry liqueur, creme de cassis, white chocolate, and espresso roast. Dense, opulent, and full-bodied, with a terrific texture as well as palate penetration, and a 40-45 second finish.
International Wine CellarSaturated medium ruby. Slightly rustic, porty aromas of blackberry, violet, leather, bitter chocolate and menthol. Thick, sweet and fairly smooth, but a bit alcoholic and inelegant despite its big, chewy fruit. Really outscaled wine. Finishes with big, tongue-dusting tannins.
