BackgroundGenerous aromas of blueberry and cassis with wisps of violets and lavender. Dense, vibrant flavors of polished black fruit, including black currant, black plum and blackberries, dusted with dark cocoa and a touch of graphite. Concentrated and lush on the palate, with opulent fruit, velvety texture, beautifully integrated oak notes and round, smooth tannins. Bright acidity draws the rich berry flavors through the exceptionally long finish. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time 4 to 15 years from vintage.
