Opaque purple. Deep, ripe aromas of blackcurrant, cherry-cola, licorice, mocha, pepper and chocolatey, smoky oak. Lush, ripe and deeply concentrated, with a layered texture to the flavors of dark berry liqueur, cola, candied violet and bitter chocolate. Finishes impressively broad, velvety and spicy, with smooth tannins and very good definition. Pretty elegant for such a decadent wine.
