Saturated color with black cherry and purple rim. Black ripe fruit, such as black plum. Some mineral aromas, plus cocoa, chocolate, are very deep and elegant. The aromas come up from the bottom of the glass, with a sensation of volume. The wine is dense, voluminous, and full on the palate. Silky, with present but very subtle tannins. Black fruit, plum, chocolate, some mint and mineral notes make for a full, great wine. Very elegant and long finish.
