Inky purple color. Black cherry, cocoa and sexy oak spices on the nose. Fresh dark berry and cherry flavors are brightened by cinnamon and clove, picking up numbing white pepper on the back end. Plenty fat and sweet but also brisk, with suave vanilla and cola character on the lengthy finish.
Deep red with a bright rim. Compelling, scented bouquet of redcurrant, raspberry, fresh rose and minerals. Juicy red berry flavors pack solid punch but are surprisingly lithe, with good back-end lift and snap. Brisk red berry skin qualities dominate the long, taut finish.
