(2006 Vintage) Color: Dark ruby/purple.
Nose: A captivating and refined nose with a well-integrated aromas of blackberries, violets and roasted coffee beans
Palate: Elegance and crystal purity characterize this extremely complex and densely woven wine with an aging patential of decades.
Tanzer(2001 Vintage) "Good deep red-ruby. Sappy, primary black fruit and mineral aromas, with hints of violet and licorice. Lush, opulent and suave, but with noteworthy energy in the mouth, thanks to brisk, harmonious acidity. Very long and firm on the back end, with the wine's tannins currently covered by sappy fruit."
