(From 2009 Vintage) Dark fruits, rich color and savory spices highlight the first impression of this wine. On the palate, it shows brightness with a touch of earthiness, caramel and black pepper. It has good density and richness through the finish.

Wine & Spirits(From 1999 Vintage) Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine
Wine & Spirits(From 2006 Vintage) This blend appears to be very concentrated. It has a deep ruby/garnet core with a lighter, purple outer rim. It has an open nose, full of figs and cassis, oak, vanilla extract and chalk. This is a full body wine with firm tannins, balanced acid and a nice long finish. Pair this wine with a confit of salted duck leg, garlic and shallots, wilted mustard greens and warm German potato salad. The plate might sound a little abstract but the pair will do the trick.
