Dusty deep purple color. Aromas of ripe strawberry, ripe tomato, basil, and kid leather with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, complex, medium-long plum tart with balsamic reduction, bay leaf, chocolate mousse, and coffee finish with moderate oak flavor. A mature wine that offers distinctive alluring aromas and highly pairable flavors.
