(From 2009 Vintage) Full ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of cassis, cherry-vanilla, pipe tobacco and licorice, complemented by a smoky overtone. Lush, penetrating dark fruit flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and pick up spiciness with air. Ripe but lively cabernet, finishing with excellent thrust and lingering tobacco and vanilla notes.
