The purple-ruby color is the perfect introduction to this deep, complex wine. The aromas contain ripe blackberry, cool menthol and earthy lycan, the palate is plush and supple reminiscent of juicy black plums, english thyme and cocoa powder, the finish is long and persistent with fine tannins and firm structure. It will knock your socks off now and only improve over the next 15 years.
