(From 2012 Vintage) The wine has a round, full-bodied entry on the palate, delivering an extravagance of fruit that leads into a lingering finish.
(From «nv» Vintage) It has a nose that is almost floral, with tones of lavender, dried berries, baking chocolate, bacon bits. Aromas are rich, velvety and wonderfully appealing. Silky round entry with acid to balance and high fruit concentration. The nose leaves no doubt about the seriousness of this wine. The palate is fruit driven both before and after the high tannin middle core. The finish is long, not drying of tannin, and beckons a second sip.
