This wine is deep ruby with developing and robust notes of blackberry preserves, crushed blueberry, dried prune, fig paste, violet, cherry blossom, black licorice, anise, cedar, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, pencil shavings, leather, tobacco, and forest floor.

With a long, elegant finish and impeccable balance, this wine is top-notch-delish! C’est magnifique!
