Robert Sinskey 2007 POV
The color is a deep, ruby-tinged purple, nearly opaque at its core. Bright and intense aromas escape the glass with suggestions of blueberries and cassis. But there is so much more: a blast of wild fennel, a touch of earthy olive, a dash of vanilla, a wisp of violet! The aromas find substance with a luxurious sip as impressive structure underpins the flavors, inviting culinary suitors with hints of a long-term relationship, at least until the end of dinner. Shockingly delicious.
