Deep inky purple color. Fruit dominated bouquet of ripe blackberries and dark-skinned plums, joined by violet, vanilla, baking spice, black olive, and a bit of coffee. Super ripe on the palate as well, with some dark cherry, black pepper, and cocoa notes coming out. Plush, velvety, and mouthfilling, but not huge. Good length, with a strong dark chocolate note on the finish.
