(2011 Vintage) The glass with tobacco, grilled herbs, smoke, incense and plums melding together in this soft, beautifully textured. Sage, rosemary, lavender, licorice and menthol add complexity to a core of dark plum and cherries.
International Wine CellarMedium, amber-edged red. Ripe, chocolatey aromas of plum, currant, leather and cedar; claret-like, complex and just about mature. Juicy, deep and subtly rich but not especially fleshy. Intensely flavored and penetrating, with surprising acidity for the year. Stylish and long on the aftertaste. A warm year in a cool region, notes Draper.
