This opens with warm aromas suggesting coffee, toast, espresso, baked plum and a hint of nutmeg. The ripe, fleshy palate doles out mature black cherry framed in close-grained tannins. Notes of cinnamon, cocoa and orange zest give it a touch of the exotic.
Shows ripeness, with black cherry, plum and spice flavors matched to a rich texture and solid structure. Delivers grip on the finish, which veers toward dryness.
