Inky purple in color, the 2010 Optimus has ripe dark berry and cherry aromas with hints of cocoa, cola, and anise. A wave of lush fruit attacks the palate with cherry and blueberry, underpinned by leather, cassis, violets, and a peppery zest. The silky texture and juicy mouthfeel gives way to a spicy, vibrant finish with soft tannins and hints of dark berry and French oak. The purity in this wine is exceptional.
