Vinous

Brilliant violet. Smoky, mineral- and oak-accented cherry and dark berry scents are lifted by a suggestion of peppery spices. Juicy and expansive on the palate, showing excellent breadth and depth to the cherry-vanilla and blueberry flavors. Opens up slowly on the very long, floral-tinged finish, which is framed by dusty, fine-grained tannins. Showing its oak but there’s plenty of material here to support it.
