The mouth texture is silky, velvety and clear. The aromatic palette is centered on spicy red fruits with aromas and flavors of violet and blueberry. The mouth finish is tightened by the tannins. The graphite notes fit perfectly with the initial impression of velvety and silky and are just waiting to express themselves more fully over time.
