The bouquet of this wine is immediately full and lush, with aromas of brambly blackberry, cassis, crushed violet and cocoa-dusted raspberry. The flavors are similarly ripe and juicy on the palate, but don't taste overly so, with rich notes of black cherry, berry and toasted sweet spice. The texture is round yet structured, with medium tannins that linger through the finish. Drink now–2018.
