Dark purple in color and quite concentrated. On the nose, I find this wine to be a raspberry bomb, showing secondary aromas of milk chocolate, blueberries, anise and violet. This wine is incredibly sensual and soft on the palate, like drinking liquid silk, while showing dark fruit flavors, rich bitter chocolate, a touch of slate and charcoal. Well, integrated wine that I would have loved to keep in bottle for a few years, curious as to whether it would acquire a touch more depth and complexity.

Incredibly dark color to this wine. The nose is wound up with rich dark fruits in a dark berry compote of sorts with hints of smoke, minerals, and anise. Violets become more apparent as air begins to bring on a perfumy component to this wine. In the mouth this wine is soft and gentle with a creamy mouthfeel filled with blueberries, earth, black raspberry and light touches of pepper that dance in and out. Really a rich and well balanced wine that I would love to taste in about 3 more years when the chocolate and coffee notes might show a bit more complementing the already rich fruit character. The tannins are well integrated and the acidity sits second fiddle to the fruit, but overall this wine has a nice balance with only a touch of sweetness on the finish.
