Deep purple/black with a bright ruby rim, the color of this wine gives an indication of the richness and complexity to follow. The leather, coffee and earth on the nose, are joined by soft violet, rose petal, Marello cherry, Black current and orange rind as the wine opens up. Pomegranate, red cherry and lush cranberry give way to black cherry, mocha and tobacco on the mid-palate. An extremely long finish hints at baking spices, dark chocolate and dried cherries with bright acidity balanced with focused, elegant tannins.
