(From 2009 Vintage) Generous and concentrated on the palate, this dynamic wine delivers its signature of alluring, savory blueberry and blackberry fruit, freshly ground espresso and aromas of anise, dried sage and cigar-box. A satisfyingly persistent finish of dark fruits unfolds to reveal notes of graphite, toasted hazelnut and seamless, finely-knit tannins.
Elegant, "restrained" style. Aromatic flavors of cherry, blackcurrant, fennel and spicy cedar marry together with hints of roasted coffee, violets and sweet vanillin oak. An accessible wine with the structure and concentration for future cellaring.Suggested food pairing: grilled or roasted meats - lamb, duck, beef and game. An excellent accompaniment to any roasted meat dish and mildly spicy or fusion dishes.
