Garnet red with ruby highlights and a lovely intensity of color. On the nose, the wine has aromas of coffee and sweet pepper with a hint of camphor mixed with vanilla. On the palate, aromas of undergrowth mixed with musk and blueberry. This wine is focused, displaying a spine of black cherry, plum & spice that spreads from the core before a chalky dusty rose finish asserts itself. Solid structure with silky smooth tannins.
