(From 2009 Vintage) Black cherry and cocoa aromas compliment vibrant flavors of blackberry, licorice and cassis. Hints of graphite and a subtle earthiness provide layers of complexity. With its firm structure and polished tannins, the velvety texture glides easily across a lengthy finish.
(From 2011 Vintage) Deep crimson colored with gorgeous aromas of blackberry, mocha and sweet herbs. Across the palate, the intensity and complexity of flavors build, ranging from ripe plum and rich black cherry to pleasant notes of graphite. This is a wine with excellent structure, creamy texture and delicate finesse from beginning to end
