Dense and extracted, this conveys aromas of Asian spice, prune, raisin, black pepper and espresso. The concentrated, thick palate delivers black plum, raisin, blueberry extract and crème brûlée alongside smooth tannins and soft acidity. The heat of evident alcohol and syrupy texture would make this a nice wine that inspires meditation.
