Deep plum colored and almost opaque. Offering enticing aromas of rich black fruit, cassis and black cherry with hints of smoke and graphite. Clean and bright aromas, exhibiting an almost brooding depth. Velvety-smooth on the entry, rich seductive fruit is layered atop a structure of solid, yet supple mid-palate tannins. Flavors of black plum and allspice along with hints of leather and vanilla lead to a well-balanced finish.
