Review

Inky purple. Explosive, exotically perfumed aromas of blueberry, blackberry, dark chocolate, toasty oak spices and incense; nothing shy about this. Lush, supple and broad, with palate-coating dark berry compote and floral pastille flavors accented by licorice and Indian spices. For all its exotic fruit character, this shows surprising poise andprecision and an almost restrained character. I did say "almost." Finishes velvety and long, with supple tannins and lingering notes of dark berry liqueur and candied flowers. I'd be inclined to serve this by itself, or maybe with a blue cheese.
