Wine Details

Wine Description

On the nose this wine exhibits blackberry jam, vanilla, andallspice leap out of the glass yet gracefully yield to notes of dried plum, coee bean, and perfume with some patience. Deceptively soft up front, with fresh strawberry and raspberry immediately apparent. These instantly give way though to density and concentration of flavor as the tannins and acidity come into focus. The finish.

    tried at Rob/Nat Xmas dinner 2010 - quite possibly best wine at dinner. good dark fruit even after 19 years, also got mushroom/savory/smoky flavors, but well balanced and went perfectly with the meat. RP 95
