Brilliant ruby. Ripe, spice-accented red berries, cherry cola, coconut and a hint of woodsmoke on the perfumed nose. Pliant and appealingly sweet, offering oak-spiced cherry, black raspberry, licorice and mocha flavors that deepen and tighten up on the back half. Finishes with very good tenacity, the dusty tannins lending grip to lingering cherry and succulent herb notes.
