"(aged in a 50/50 blend of new American and used French oak barrels) Lurid violet color. Heady, mineral-tinged red berry preserve, spicecake and lavender pastille aromas are complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals and cola. Offers juicy, sharply focused raspberry, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors that show impressive depth and turn sweeter with air. The juicy, extremely persistent finish is framed by supple, slow-building tannins that fold quickly into the wine's plush red fruit. - Josh Raynolds"
