Wineaccess.com: Deep ruby. A highly aromatic nose displays ripe cherry, lavender and spicecake scents complicated by notes of cocoa powder and anise. Deeply pitched bitter cherry and dark chocolate flavors gain liveliness and sweetness with air, picking up blackberry preserve and licorice qualities. Impressively concentrated but energetic, with a sweet, seamless and persistent finish. 92/100
