International Wine Cellar(2002 Vintage) Full ruby. Varietally accurate aromas of cassis, black raspberry, licorice, spices and black olive. Sweet, dense and spicy, with good lift from the high-pitched violet and mint notes. The wine's initially sweet tannins turned a bit tougher as the wine opened in the glass.
