Light, brilliant magenta. Smoky, spice-tinged black raspberry, cherry-cola and floral oil scents are given urgency and energetic lift by a building mineral nuance. Sweet and sharply delineated on the palate, offering intense red berry. savory herb, Asian spice and floral pastille flavors that are energized by a core of juicy acidity. Rich yet lively in style, finishing impressively long and silky, with smooth tannins coming in steadily to frame the wine's lingering, alluring sweet red fruit.
