(2011 Vintage) Bright medium ruby. Aromas of black plum, dark cherry and mocha are complicated by musky, smoky spices. Silky and sweet but with good juicy clarity and lift to the perfumed flavors of raspberry, black cherry, menthol, tobacco and peppery herbs. Finishes with rather suave tannins and very good verve and sneaky length.
