The nose is rich and layered, betraying a very masculine, dark-fruited wine. Roasted coffee beans, exotic spice, and chocolate also contribute aromatically. More layers and richness push forward on the palate, with feminine tannin notes keeping the lushness in check. Palate flavors of black cherry cola, chocolate-covered raspberry, and more spice can also be detected. The finish carries length and silk, with overriding notes of blueberry and oak-inspired spices.
