Opaque purple. Sexy, fragrant bouquet evokes black raspberry, spicecake and potpourri. Stains the palate with sweet red and dark berry compote flavors, picking up spiciness with air. The finish repeats the berry note strongly and clings with excellent tenacity. I'd drink this now for its luscious fruit, but there's not rush.

Deep, bright ruby-red. Sexy raspberry and blackberry preserve aromas are complicated by Asian spices, smoky minerals and fresh flowers. Suave and velvety, with deep, sweet flavors of red and dark berries, cherry-cola and candied rose. Supple tannins supply shape and gentle back-end grip. A very appealing wine: it would be no crime to drink this now.
