Mammoth from the beginning. The nose practically bleeds black fruit, fine leather and charcoal. Calling the bouquet alluring would be conservative. In the mouth, the wine pumps black cherry, cassis and enough acidity to coax out plenty of complexity and vitality. Huge but not a clod, with finishing flavors of mocha and bitter chocolate.
