Velvety texture with strong but not overly astringent tannins. A big, intense nose loaded with black raspberries, chocolate pudding and accents of menthol. The mouth offers suggestions of violets and spice along with dark friut, and leads into a lingering finish. A complex and immensely satisfying selection for the price.
