"Bright violet color. A heady, complex bouquet displays scents of ripe dark berries, Indian spices and pipe tobacco, with a vanilla quality building in the glass. Blueberry and bitter cherry flavors are impressively concentrated but lively, picking up a smoky character with aeration. Closes very long and smooth, with gentle tannins coming in late to add shape and grip. This supple, appealing sweet and seamless wine is balanced to age but is showing awfully well right now.- Josh Raynolds"
