Dark purple. A highly perfumed, complex bouquet evokes dark fruit liqueur, smoky minerals and pungent flowers, complemented by notes of olive and anise. Stains the palate with juicy black and blue fruit flavors given bite by zesty acidity and a peppery element. Clings with fantastic tenacity on the sweet, dark fruit-dominated finish, which is framed by velvety, slow-building tannins.
