Deep red with a pale rim. Superripe nose unleashes a wave of red cherry and dark plum macerated in alcohol, with complicating notes of cinnamon, vanilla, roasted herbs and ketchup. Very rich yet refined on the palate, with superripe, highly concentrated red fruit flavors that avoid overripeness. This huge (38.7 g/l dry extract!) and very long wine remains just this side of over the top, somehow managing to retain an element of refinement.
