Glass-staining ruby. Exotically perfumed aromas of dark fruit compote, smoky Indian spices and licorice, with a building floral quality. Coats the palate with juicy blackberry and mulberry flavors enlivened by juicy acidity. Quite rich but manages to remaing energetic, finishing with sappy dark berry flavors and excellent persistence.

Opened 2 hours prior to drinking. Very young color with lots of deep, dark red and purple colors. On the nose, lots of juicy fruit with some oak. Flavors of red and black fruits, as this wine is young and very primary at this time. Enjoyable, well-made wine that will pair well with grilled meats, but for my taste lacking some nuance. Perhaps some more time in the bottle will allow this wine to become more interesting.

Bright, lively flavors, although an oddly muted nose. Kind of a New World style, but quite good.
