In the glass, this wine is a deep, dusky purple. On the nose, dark cherries and ripe blackberries dominate. These aromas are joined by notes of cedar, blackcurrant, tobacco, leather and wild blueberry. The palate follows the nose with more ripe cherry and blackberry. Additional characteristics of warm cedar, tobacco leaf, cocoa, wild blueberries and allspice make this wine very well rounded. The texture is plush, yet silky and it is supported by a well-integrated and refined tannin structure. The finish is long and intense.
