A deep, dark purple color with violet notes. The nose displays aromas of ripe cherries, port wine, and smoked ham, accompanied by light herbal notes. The palate presents notes of fig, chocolate, and rum-raisins. Its sweet, voluptuous tannins and crisp acidity result in a long, lingering finish.
"Glass-staining purple. Black fruit preserves, violet and dark chocolate on the nose, boosted by a strong jolt of smoky bacon fat that gains strength with air. Supple and generous in the mouth, highlighted by deep, spicy black and blue fruit flavors and exotic florality. Dense but lithe, showing very good finishing clarity and persistent sweetness."
