...opening with aromas of red cherry preserves, blackberries, warm cranberry and earthy nuances of soil and leaves with a background of pretty floral perfume. It’s medium-bodied and silky with great concentration of ripe fruits, spice and earthy accents, mouthwatering acidity and grainy tannins, finishing long and layered. Delicious.
Lively and sharply delineated on the perfumed nose, displaying ripe red berry, potpourri and five-spice powder qualities plus a touch of smokiness. Juicy and subtly sweet, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that take a sweeter turn with aeration...elegant style...silky, well-knit tannins...persistent, red-fruit-driven finish.
The wine must speak for itself, and it does so quite well, with dense textured seams of black cherry, Kahlua and granite.
