Really dark and extracted, smelled like chocolate covered cherries right away. The underlying spice notes mingled with the vanilla and cherry nicely, the tannins were polished and really carried the dark cocoa on the finish. Hedonistic in all the right ways!

Hedonistic-ally gorgeous! This Turleyesque zin is the best I've ever tasted under $75!
