Deep, shimmering violet. Lively dark berry, potpourri and licorice aromas are complemented by smoky mineral and exotic spice flourishes. Juicy and lively on the palate, offering pliant black raspberry, bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors that deepen and become sweeter with air. Finishes very long and spicy, with solid mineral thrust and polished, slow-building tannins that sneak in late.
