Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) (aged in demi-muids and barriques, 20% of them new, for 22 months): Inky ruby. Pungent black raspberry and cherry pit aromas are complemented by suggestions of smoked meat, licorice and violet pastille. Silky and succulent on the palate, offering spice-accented dark berry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. The long, silky finish brings unfolding sweetness, slow-building tannins and an echo of dark berries.
