(From 2012 Vintage) Inky ruby. Highly aromatic, exotic bouquet of red and dark berries, violet, vanilla and woodsmoke. Broad and deep, showing sweet black raspberry and blueberry flavors, a velvety texture and bright mineral snap. Nicely blends richness and energy and finishes with lingering sweetness and supple, even tannins. This is delicious right now.
