Brilliant deep opaque purple. Beguiling nose of black raspberry, blueberry, smokey oak, vanilla. Satisfyingly full in the mouth but with a fairly assertive tartness that sharpens the finish. Reminds me a bit of one of the rustic old wines from Topolos, many of which displayed a similar tart structure but with lots of flavor. - HK 2014-03-30
