- Dark brick red color, with slight browning near the rim. Nice bouquet of ripe cherries, violet, burnt leather, chili spice, graphite, coffee bean. Medium bodied, dark chocolate, jam, tobacco, tea leaf, tannins have soften, yet giving just a good touch to the mouth feel. Very smooth, pure on the palate, nice length on the finish.
