"Brilliant ruby. Exotic scents of dark berry compote, incense and potpourri, with a vanilla note in the background. Lively and precise in the mouth, but with a velvety quality to its sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors. Finishes on a sappy note, with excellent clarity, round tannins and very good persistence. I find this sexy wine very approachable now but it has the depth to age. - Josh Raynolds"
