(From 2006 Vintage) Deep and intense purple with violet tints.blackcurrant and mineral tones. The palate is medium bodied and fresh, with still youthful primary fruit flavors backed by some cedary notes and ripe silky tannins.
(From 2008 Vintage) Deep red-ruby. Initially reticent but deep nose hints at blueberry juice, blackberry liqueur and roasted smoky plum. Creamy and sweet on entry, with black fruit and mineral flavors given a firm edge by licorice and herbs.
Deep ruby color with some rim variation. Complex and enticing nose of blackberries, concentrated cherries, cassis, meat drippings, and chocolate. Flavors of the same with coffee grounds and mild old. Long, lingering finish with medium-low tannins, medium acids, low alcohol. Ready to drink now but could cellar for an additional 5 years. Paired perfectly with red meat. Benefits from short decanting.
