- Purple color, with beautiful legs. Pure and sharp nose of earth, currants, licorice, crushed stone, bit of ham. Silk, dense, plush, wow, wonderful balance, layers of black fruits, cigar wrapper, and coffee bean, above the chewy tasty tannins. Wonderful finish of crisp smoke, fruits and jam. Almost full bodied, just want to keep having it coast ur mouth, delicious. Very rich with sweet, ripe berries
- 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.
