(From 2011 Vintage) The color is dark ruby with slight purple around edges. The aroma is ripe blackberries, roasted herbs, cedar, violets, honeysuckle and black currents. The palate is full bodied, with short tannins that give this wine a whole full mouth richness and a great texture. The fruit, oak and acid balance is showing very well. Spice, coffee, vanilla and black fruit.
(From 2010 Vintage) The wine exhibits a dark ruby hue and a nose of black currants and mocha. A medium-bodied palate with dark berries, cherry, and pain grille leads into a satisfying finish.
