Deep garnet with bright red hues. Vibrant dark berries and black currant accented by hints of chocolate. A touch of anise is accompanied by subtle notes of spicy oak. Stylish with a rich, fruit-driven palate. Medium- to full-bodied with flavors of ripe forest fruits, spice and hints of cocoa are followed by a long, bold finish.
"This generous red has firm tannins but also plenty of rich plum, cherry and savory, thyme-scented meat flavors to make it feel fleshy and vibrant. Best from 2009 through 2013."
