Inky purple. Aromatic, exotic nose displays blackberry, fresh flowers, cola, licorice and smoke. Broad, fleshy and alluringly sweet, offering powerful, deep black and blue fruit flavors and a hint of peppery spice. Shows very good depth of flavor and an exotic, liqueur-like aspect. Finishes smooth, with big, broad tannins and serious cling. Score - 90. (Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar, July/Aug. 2011)
Very soft & smooth. definitely worth buying again.
