Deep red. Sexy, intensely perfumed cherry pie, boysenberry and floral pastille aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola, incense and Asian spices. Palate-staining red and blue fruit preserve, rose pastille and spicecake flavors convey a deft blend of power and nerviness thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back emphatically on a strikingly long, sappy finish shaped by smooth, fully absorbed tannins.
