Wine Tasting Notes
The first thing to note with this wine is the color, the core is a red so dark it's practically black, and it fades sharply to a rich garnet at the edge. Smell the glass, and your first impression will be blackberries with just a hint of anise liqueur. Stay with the glass for a moment, and the nose gains in black and red fruit, bright and fresh but with a sweet note of preserved Italian cherries.

Take a sip, and you will initially find a pleasant acidity coupled with a velvety mouthfeel, balanced against an elegant note of red currants. Linger a moment, and you will uncover bold characters of pomegranates and rock candy, with just a hint of the liqueur hinted at in the nose, all woven over a background of rich, juicy tannin. Swallow your sip, and you will find that the finish on this wine is huge and intense, a rolling wave of ripe tannins and decadent berry compote that is nearly overwhelming. At its peak, the finish unveils the heart of this wine; coffee and chocolate, blackberries and currants, anise and cedar, everything promised at the beginning of the palate is delivered with interest. You can hold, drink or cellar this wine for a decade.
