($85) Glass-staining purple. Explosively perfumed aromas of blackberry, cherry-cola, candied licorice and black cardamom, with a smoky mineral undertone and a hint of fruitcake. Lush, decadent dark fruit flavors show a liqueur-like density but don't come off as heavy thanks to slow-mounting minerality and a touch of spicy black pepper. There's nothing shy about this, and while there's the ripeness and weight that I expect from this wine, there's also a brightness that bodes well for aging.
