(2010 Vintage) Smoky, blueberry aromas are punctuated by whiffs of earth and sweet caramel. The palate is dark, brooding and inky, with Dutch cocoa and mocha mingling with ripe fruit flavors, including satsuma plums. The texture is firm and rich with gravelly tannins and a robust, masculine structure.
