"Brilliant violet. Suave, expansive aromas of fresh blueberry, blackberry, incense and candied flowers. Juicy, seamless and concentrated, offering intense, smoke-tinged dark fruit preserve, violet and olive flavors and suggestions of licorice and spicecake that build on the back half. In a generous, fruit-forward style; sneaky tannins frame the energetic dark fruit on a very long, floral-tinged finish."

"Quite a dark red; the nose is smoky, with fine and cool berry fruit, cassis-blueberry, plus a mild violet hint, licorice. The palate is fresh, attacks on restrained dark red fruits, is direct, streamlined, naked. This is spinal wine as it stands, some Burgundian tendencies. It grips freshly on the finish."
