Bright garnet with brick red highlights in the glass; concentrated aromas of dried flowers, violet and wild rose to the fore, spices and hints of blackberry jam. Dry, warm, full- flavored palate with an elegant finish of ripe plum and lingering bitter almond.

"A harmonious red, with a sense of finesse to the integration of supple tannins and flavors of ripe wild cherry, dried marjoram, anise and fig bread. Offers a subtle, tar-tinged finish. Drink now through 2026."
