Bright violet color. Aromas of mulberries, India ink, and cracked white peppercorns follow through on a silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body with baked apple, sautéed pepper, cedar, and spice notes. Finishes with a chewy, powdery tannin fade.
Mild aromas of vanilla, black raspberries, cocoa and oak spice with a silky, dryish medium body and a tart, berry, tomato skin and cedar finish with firm tannins.
