($45; 48% cabernet sauvignon, 28% syrah and 24% petit verdot; 15.5% alcohol) Inky purple. An explosively perfumed bouquet displays scents of blackberry, violet, rose and incense, with a strong note of smoky Indian spices. Open-knit, sappy dark fruit flavors show no rough edges and pick up notes of licorice and mint with air. Alluringly silky on the finish, which repeats the floral and spice notes.

Big fan of this! Beautiful dark ruby with a deep core and magenta on the rim. Intense nose that is extremely inviting. Aromas include blackberry, floral notes and smoke. The body is medium plus, the wine is round and the tannins are fine to silky. There is dark ripe fruit with plum and an almost a syrup quality. Anise, tar and some crushed leaves on the finish. Very concentrated.
