Inky purple in the glass with virtually no legs- 14.5% ABV. Vanilla, spice, ripe blackberry, (served in the wrong glass so it was difficult to draw off aromas). Ripe black fruits, fresh oaky notes of vanilla, chocolate powder, black plum and cassis. Delicious with medium tannins and acidity- a full body that covers my palate through to a medium length finish. Great drinking right now with a few years left in cellar. 92 points from me and at $26, worthy of looking for as this 5 star beauty will impress. Salut….
