Deep ruby-red. Exotic aromas and flavors of raspberry, sandalwood, incense, smoky oak and white pepper. Smooth, sweet and nicely delineated, with insidious acidity giving shape and lift to the middle palate. Wonderfully perfumed in the mouth, showing sexy oak tones and a note of clove oil. Finishes with firm but suave tannins, sound structure and a lingering note of black cardamom. Very seductive wine.
