International Wine CellarDeep ruby. Strikingly complex nose evokes blackberry, cassis, cherry compote, candied licorice, vanilla and incense. Juicy dark berry preserve flavors stain the palate and are enlivened by suave minerality. Fine-grained tannins help to focus the luscious dark fruits, which don't let up on the finish. A massive, deeply concentrated wine that manages to be balanced and fresh. Finishes with outstanding clarity and thrust. There are just 200 bottles for the U.S. market.
