Aromas of baked plum, oak, camphor and violet waft out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the warm, bold palate features prune, black-cherry jam, vanilla, espresso and almond liqueur accompanied by assertive, fine-grained tannins.
...a lifted display, both floral and dusty, revealing sweet rose, strawberry, cloves and hints of licorice...velvety-smooth and elegant in feel, casting blue-tinged ripe berries effortlessly across the palate, as minerals and fine tannins collect toward the close.
