An amazing tour de force in winemaking this massive opaque black/purple-colored offering boasts an extraordinarily pure nose of black fruits intermixed with cedar vanillin fudge and espresso. It is unctuously-textured with exhilarating levels of blackberry/cassis fruit and extract as well as multiple dimensions that unfold on the palate.
