Mashed cherries, dark chocolate, powerful violets, and oak on an impressive nose. Oh wow. Luscious violet palate with cherries and ripe blueberries. Complex mouthfeel and classy oak. The first half is more floral and the second half introduces dark chocolate and a sweet finish. So much going on here, and all of it good. I've seen negative reviews on this, but in my opinion this is a wonderful wine. I plan on buying many more bottles of this.
Color poured as ruby, slight bricking. the tip of the nose was citrus, honey vanilla to orange turns floral and ripe red fruits. Medium plus tannin (apple skins) and dried cranberry. Nice Rhone blend. Drink now.
