Brilliant violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits and candied flowers, along with subtle oak spice, vanilla and cola accents. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering black raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors and a hint of smokiness that builds as the wine stretches out. Finishes sappy, penetrating and quite long, with smooth, slow-building tannins adding subtle grip.
