...aromas of French oak, blackberry, exotic spice, menthol and a whiff of crushed violet on this glossy red. The palate shows both structure and finesse, offering juicy black cherry, vanilla, licorice and mocha framed in fine-grained tannins.
An oaky style, this cherry- and blackberry-flavored red is focused and intense, with a long, mineral-tinged aftertaste.
Impressively ripe and sweet nose, with more than a hint of oak... Lifted, and almost a little tart, but works well with the sweet oak note. A little dry on the finish.
