"Pure purple in the glass with a light pink rim. Big aromatic nose of fresh roses, dried flowers, violets, red fruits, grape jolly rancher, crushed rocks. In the mouth, flavors of red and black fruits, hibiscus, and cocoa nibs with a touch of cinnamon. Medium to high tannins with a medium lingering finish. This is a wine that needs time: starts out slow and underperforms. However, with air and opportunity, really shows complexity and life. Will benefit from 5-8 years more for full flavor integration. "
