Why I like this wine

This wine has a very deep dark red color with a beautiful ruby hue on the rim of the glass. It has a spirited nose of black and blueberries (blackberries, blueberries, plums), violet, and a touch of smoke; the wine is round and full-bodied. Allow the wine to breathe a little in the glass as you drink it, and more tropical spice and blackberry flavors will be released. The solid body and firm tannins mean that this wine has considerable aging potential.
