Limpid ruby-red. Pungent, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, incense, vanilla, cola and candied flowers. Deeply concentrated yet lithe on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, bitter cherry, spicecake and mocha flavors that pick up a minerally element with aeration. Shows serious power and spicy thrust on the wonderfully long, dark-berry-driven finish, which features well-knit tannins and a sexy floral quality.
