Lively purple in appearance. The nose releases rich impressions of fruit, with clear notes of blackcurrant and blueberry, as well as dried plum and wild cherry, nicely complemented by spicy nuances of liquorice and cinnamon, and a subtle touch of chocolate. It develops beautifully on the palate, with a crisp thread of acidity enlivening succulent fruit, and with a well-calibrated suite of fine tannins. It shows a dynamic, full-flavored finale.

"Fascinating aromas of ripe berries and hints of coconut and vanilla bean follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Lots going on here. Excellent value...so excellent now."
