Medium-dark to opaque ruby-purple. Blackberry confiture and cassis are highlighted by notes of eucalyptus, peach, and spice. On the palate, medium-full to full-bodied but amazingly precise and focused, with flavors of blackberry and one of my favorite holiday desserts, persimmon pudding. Montafi has been on a roll lately with the 2007, 2008, and 2009 all besting previous vintages. Drinkable on release but given the verve and energy of this wine, enjoy from 2013 through 2019.
