Dark purple, blackish. Terrific aromas for cherry jam, a concentrate syrupy one, rasberry cinnamon, spices with some heat hitting my nose. This is such a high octane wine. The flavors are bursting in mouth. Concentrate sweet cherry syrup, cream de cassis, and smoke. Ultra full body, super ripe, and powerful. Finish hot and it even burn my throat. Great wine but not an easy drinking one. More like a 2 years old wine.
This was almost undrikable 3 years ago due to high heat. Today, it now shows very nice sweet fruits and complexity but still have the heat. Still not for a faint heart. 91 points.
