Dense midnight black heart with a deep dark purple black tinged hue. Alluring aromas of dark raspberries, liquorice and dark plum flood the nostrils followed by some vanillin cedar, earth and spice notes. Seductive blackberry, dark plum, liquorice and dark raspberry fruits supplely kiss the palate. Delicate vanillin cedar, earthy mocha and spice characters lie underneath. Superb intensity and depth with silky smooth tannins seamlessly integrated with the glorious plush fruit. Concludes long with a refined opulence.

Other Reviews....
A juicy and fruity red with blackberry and some dark chocolate and graphite character. Lead pencil, too. Medium-bodied with creamy and integrated tannins and a juicy finish. Savory and delicious. Some iodine. A blend of grenache, shiraz and mourvedre. Drink or hold.
