Here's a tasty mix of blueberry, blackberry and black-cherry fruit, with supporting tannins that are fully ripe and nicely polished. Light streaks of brown sugar, black coffee, toasted coconut and dark chocolate come up also, adding definition and texture. In short, this is a lovely wine with sophisticated charm.
