This wine starts off shy and reserved, but with time in the glass or decanting, it opens up to reveal beautiful layers of dark fruits, crushed purple florals and earthy spices, all mingling harmoniously. A chocolate-fudge flavor adds decadence to the velvety, plush mouthfeel, and remains through the close alongside a touch of peppery spice.
