Brilliant ruby-red. Intense raspberry, rose and licorice aromas, with a tangy mineral accent. Seamless red and dark berry flavors show impressive depth and sweetness, gaining depth with air and taking a turn toward cherry without any loss of energy or focus. The tannins are completely absorbed by the suave fruit. Very creamy and sweet on the finish, with compelling depth and length. This simply refuses to quit.
