Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Totally opaque black crimson color with deep dark crimson red hue. The nose shows lifted notes of violets and blackcurrant followed by some dark mulberry, tobacco, earthy cedar and light spice. Mid weight with elegant and refined flavors of dark mulberry, cedar, earthy tobacco and spice. Fine grained, yet dry dusty tannin structure. Medium to long aftertaste of dark ripe mulberry, earthy tobacco and spicy cedar.

    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.
