"Deep violet color. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes smoke-accented cherry, blackberry, incense, candied violet and exotic spices, along with mineral and olive notes in the background. Offers appealingly sweet dark fruit preserve, floral pastille, espresso and cola flavors that are supported by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Round, well-judged tannins come up steadily on a very long, energetic finish that echoes the floral and spice notes. Made with 20% whole clusters. - Josh Raynolds"
