Wine Description

Rich steady color. The intense nose is marked by notes of cedar and vanilla which balance perfectly, a powerful and clean fruitiness. The palate is characterized by tannins of great distinction; carried by a beautiful freshness to its elegant finale. A great success, for this outstanding vintage year.

Rich, sexy, silky and full in the mouth, with expressive flavors of black raspberry, game, smoke and truffle. Finishes with strong but suave tannins and excellent length.

Winemaker's Notes

Extremely pretty aromas of mineral, blackberry and raspberry. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Well-crafted red.
