Color: Deep Purple, no fade. Nose: Black fruit, especially blackberry, black current, and black cherry, along with violet, licorice. Explosive after 45 minutes in a wide-bottomed decanter. Palate: Rich. Full bodied. Voluptuous. Redolent with black fruit especially blackberry as well as crème de cassis and a slight touch of licorice. the wine unfolded on the palate as a rich, almost port-like wine. The tannins were smooth, there was good acidity, and there was no heat given its 14.5% abv. The finish was long and most enjoyable. A mouthful of wine.
