Intense violet, dark berry, ground pepper and a whiff of leather are some of the aromas you'll discover in this radiant wine. Concentrated and delicious, the palate brings flavors of blackberry, black cherry, clove and tobacco, while fresh acidity and velvety tannins provide balance. Soft but structured, it's already tempting, but wait a few more years for added depth.
