"Bright purple. Powerful smoke- and spice-tinged dark fruit scents are complemented by cola, candied licorice and Indian spices. Sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering juicy black raspberry and fruitcake flavors that become spicier with aeration. Shows excellent focus and intensity on the finish, which is framed by smooth tannins that fade into the wine's vibrant fruit. This sexy, complex wine was aged in new and used French and American oak."
