The wine shows finesse, elegance and complexity with good concentration of black fruit, thyme and rosemary with secondary aromas of leather and tobacco leaves.

    "Bright ruby-red. Expressive, smoke-accented cherry and blueberry aromas are complicated by floral, vanilla and exotic spice nuances. Sappy, sweet and broad in the mouth, offering lush red and dark berry, licorice and floral pastille flavors that become spicier and livelier as the wine opens up. Shows fine clarity on the long, oak-spiced finish, which is framed by smooth, even tannins"
