Dark ruby color.
Very rich nose of fresh fruit with hints of plum, coffee and cocoa. Soft on the palate, with fruity and roasted flavors. The finish is fresh, ripe, and round.
I've changed to 4 stars because I tasted for 5 consecutive nights under vacuum. Each pour was better than the last until the 5th pour which showed the true character of this wine. This wine needs a lot of air to show its potential. Starts off one dimensional with little fruit and much tannins. By the 5th pour it was wonderful with dark berries and a nice smooth finish. If drinking the entire bottle make sure to decant for at least 2 hours with occasional swirling.
