"Inky purple. Powerful blueberry, cassis, licorice and dark chocolate on the deeply perfumed nose. Broad and sweet on the palate, with potent dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors accompanied by suggestions of olive paste and black pepper. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length, leaving behind notes of blueberry, violet and smoke. -JR"
