"Vivid ruby. Intense, spice-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry compote and underbrush, with mocha and vanilla nuances emerging with air. Juicy and focused in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. Fine-grained tannins add shape and grip to the long, juicy, penetrating finish. This could use a few more years of age but drinks very well with an hour or so of aeration.
