- Richly colored in an inky purple hue, the wine offers aromas and flavors of dark fruits, featuring blackberry, currants, smoked meats and baking spices, with menthol and cedar cigar box notes accented by rich pipe tobacco. Trending toward full body with muscular tannins, the finish is long and lingering, with a dense texture that promises a long and rewarding life cycle.
