(From 2012 Vintage) Deeply extracted cherry and bright cassis arrest the senses, holding captive on both the nose and the palate. Swiftly followed by red currant jam and black pepper, the supple mouthfeel fills out this full-bodied wine.
This wine is a complex contradiction of characteristics: powerful fruit and viscosity make this a big hearty red, yet soft and supple tannins finish the wine with finesse. Chocolate, tobacco and violets spring from the bouquet, hinting at the richness to come. Trademark jammy qualities fill the mouth with ripe plum and boysenberry fruit. The voluptuous finish lingers with toasty oak and plush fruit. Enjoy this passionate wine with any dish or anyone.
