Vinous

A suave, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, cherry preserves, incense and exotic spices, with succulent herb and olive notes in the background. Concentrated but lively as well, offering sharply defined blackberry, bitter cherry, candied violet and exotic spice flavors and a late jolt of spicy cracked pepper. Clings with strong authority on the penetrating, floral-driven finish, which is framed by slowly mounting tannins. (all whole clusters; all neutral oak)
