(From 2005 Vintage) Plum and ripe berry notes, with hints of strawberry jam, follow through to a full body, with a solid core of ripe fruit, chewy yet polished tannins and a long finish. This is deep and rich.
(From 2008 Vintage) This wine is ruby red colored, tending to garnet red with aging and has a bouquet penetrating, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. Flavors of dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent.
