Fragrant and delicate, with pretty fruit and floral aromas, matched by ripe, rich cherry, wild berry, plum and raspberry fruit. Keeps its focus, the long finish interspersed with earth and anise flavors.
Good ruby-red. Wild cherry, smoked meat, mushroom and mocha on the nose. Concentrated and fat, with spicy black fruit flavors lifted by suggestions of cranberry and pomegranate and brisk acidity. In a dense, rather muscular style. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent. 89(+?) points
