Opaque violet. Powerful black and blue fruit preserve, candied licorice and floral scents, along with suggestions of vanilla and espresso. Appealingly sweet and concentrated on the palate, offering primary blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors sharpened by a vein of smoky minerality. Densely packed and quite young, delivering solid closing thrust and chewy tannins that lend shape and solid grip.
