(2010 Vintage) Dark, vibrant cherry red with orange notes, deep and complex on the nose, hint of red berries, balsamic traces and cloves elegant, silky, excellent acid ratio, balanced with a lingering finish.
International Wine Cellar(2002 Vintage) Ruby-red. Strong vanilla and oak spice aromas atop ripe blackberry, cherry liqueur and cassis, with a complicating suggestion of roasted coffee. Thick, velvety and round, the cherry-vanilla flavor taking a turn toward cola. A veritable soda fountain of flavors, with finishing notes of licorice and mocha. Call this a guilty pleasure.
