    Deep 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.
