Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) "Impressive nose for the vintage, with loads of ripe fruit and beautiful flowers. Full-bodied and very velvety, with beautiful tannins and great fruit. I love this. Best after 2006."-Wine Spectator Seductive, silky, smoky red that is deep ruby in color with a nose that explodes with violets, fruits and berries as well as cigar box, cedar and exotic spices. Unfiltered to retain subtle nuances.
