Dark ruby color still with youthful violet highlights. Rich nose of ripe sappy cherries and plums, augmented with warm fruitcake and moist gravelly scents. Mouthfilling, clingy flavors of rich cherry, brown baking spices, and a gravelly/minerally note. Full-bodied, yet not heavy, with an elegant texture and good acidity. Very long finish. Really fine.
