Full ruby. Pungent aromas of red and dark berry preserves, Asian spices and vanilla, with slow-building smokiness. Creamy black raspberry and floral pastille flavors are complemented by a deeper note of licorice and lifted by tangy acidity. The finish echoes the sweet dark berry and floral notes and lingers with excellent tenacity. This lively wine is delicious right now.
