(From 2009 Vintage) The wine has an opaque purple color, a glorious nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, forest floor, and some subtle charcoal, and fabulous fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish. The wine is opulent, even viscous, with unreal concentration and a full-bodied purity and texture. This wine simply over-delivers at every stage of the tasting experience.

DecanterRating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Black-red, very deep extraction and concentration, but there is florality there and finely grained tannins, very New World style, but takes balance from a great vintage. Drink 2009-18. (16.5 points)
