Glass-staining ruby. A wild, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark fruits, violet and pipe tobacco, with a smoky overtone. Lush and expansive but lively too, offering sweet blackberry and cassis flavors that pick up a tangy quality with air. Silky tannins add shape to the long, spicy, slightly warm finish.
