Dense, robust and a little jagged, with violet, graphite and blackberry aromas that stir interest. The palate is ultraripe, a touch saucy and thick, and full of black fruit and chocolate flavors. Short on the finish but a good carry over from the nose and palate. It sits on the cusp of being overdone but manages to hang in there.
