In the glass the wine is a deep crimson red with vibrant purple hues. On the nose, the wine displays a complex perfume of fragrant spice, dark cherry, plum, dark chocolate, freshly roasted coffee beans and charred oak. On the palate, this is a commanding wine with multiple layers of intense, lush dark berry fruit followed by spicy fruitcake and then seductive mocha. The palate is full and generous but with precision to the structure and the texture most appealing with velvety, mouth-coating tannins mingling harmoniously with fruit and spice. Elegant acids and light, long tannins carry the palate to a persistently rewarding finish.
