Decidedly violet toned on the nose with a touch of passionfruity spiciness accenting the pepper core of black plum and basalt toned nose that gains vanilla and smoke top notes with air. fascinating in the mouth. texturally this is smooth and almost a bit dull on the palate with a base of woody, nutty flavors that keeps this low on the palate but at the same time there are those lovely hints of violets here, flashes of coffee beans, and wild blackberry flavors that pop on the palate. This finishes decidedly on the fresher side of the wine, with fine grained tannins lingering on the palate but plenty of fresh and spicy plummy fruit laced with wood spice covering them. A little like drinking two wines at once but in the end this is kind of delicious. 87pts
