Rich dark ruby color. Very deep concentrated aromas of blackberry and jammy black currant—with airing, lots of complexing nuances begin to develop, such as coffee, cedar, vanilla, chocolate, green olive along with hints of earth. On entry the wine is very soft yet very full with excellent concentration balanced with supple elegant tannins. Flavors of cherry, cedar, coffee and vanilla. The finish is long, rich and pleasurable.
