Dark plum center with a garnet-ruby edge; rich and intense. Huckleberry with notes of cocoa, coffee and cassis are the first aromas emanating from the glass. Loamy with menthol undertones. The flavor is black cherry pie with vanilla and red currant, balsam wood and a hint of graphite. Fruit forward, layered complexity, nice soft acidity, pleasantly developed tannins, well balanced, full-bodied and glycerol with a long oaky finish lingering for quite some time. Great food wine.
