Indigo in color. The alluring and complex nose figuratively grabs your face and pulls it into the glass. Notes of red and black berries with cracked black pepper, black olive tapenade, crushed violets and wild lavender with rosemary. The palate is dusty but exotic with immense fruit purity and a noticeable fineness, all wrapped in a full-bodied wine that is lighter on its feet than the texture suggests. The minerally tannins remain persistent throughout the lengthy finish.
