($47) Dark red. Perfumed aromas of ripe red berries, cherry, smoky minerals, baking spices, rose and anise. Broad, deeply flavored and intense, offering weighty cherry preserve flavors and building bitter chocolate and spice qualities. For all of its power this is surprisingly balanced, even elegant, and the tannins are completely absorbed by the sweet fruit. Finishes with building tannins and admirable lift and persistence. I'd give this some time in the decanter.
