About

90

Deep, vivid magenta. Fresh dark fruits and cherry pit on the nose, along with cracked pepper and olive flourishes. Bitter cherry and cassis flavors unfold slowly through the mid palate while picking up a hint of dark chocolate. The peppery note returns on a racy, persistent finish that leaves succulent herb and violet notes behind. By all means give this one some air if your plan is to drink it in the next year or so.
