Inky red. Brooding, concentrated aromas of tarry blackberry, blueberry, graphite, pungent flowers and saddle leather. Very sweet but also quite nuanced, with a wild mix of bright red and musky dark fruit flavors joined by intriguing underbrush and mineral tones. Very fresh on the back, which features fine, suave tannins and a lifting note of acidity. This is awfully suave, not to mention complex. A long fellow.
