Deep dark ruby, opaque core, purple reflections, brightening to the rim. Fine tobacco undertones with a BACKGROUND of black forest berryies, minty nuances of ripe blackberries, black cherries, some crème de cassis, a hint of purple candies. Substantial, elegant, juicy extracted sweetness, ripe supporting tannins, incredible finesse, structured, dark berry fruit, chocolate on the finish, mineral and characterized by great freshness, very long length and corresponding MATURITY great ageing potential.
