Chocolate, black cherry, blackberry, and black current, followed by elements of toffee, vanilla, black pepper, and coffee. A very structured wine, with a beautiful texture, good acid balance, and firm tannins. The entry is of bright fruit—black cherry, blackberry, and pomegranate—and then a lush texture filled with fruit, cocoa powder, clove, and a spicy finish. The wine has a velvety mouthfeel and long finish. Great weight on the tongue with a slight tannic—almost cabernet-like—structure.
