Inky bright crimson with a dark center and a youthful edge. Black cherries, dark fruits of the forest and hints of cassis and spice. Full-bodied wine with a supple mouth feel. Dark berry characters, spice box and liquorice mingle on the palate. Enjoy over the next 5-8 years.
"Opaque ruby. Primary dark berry and cherry aromas, with hints of mocha and espresso coming out with air. Broad, fleshy and deep, offering lush dark fruit compote flavors and a seamless texture. Dense but very unevolved, finishing with strong punch and persistent sweetness.

"Starts with a grip, then softens as the blackberry, currant and dusky spice flavors play out, remaining lively as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017."
