(2007 Vintage) In keeping with its background, the wine plays on balance and elegance. Lively and intense crushed blackberries and blackcurrant fruit tones dominate the nose with toasty oak, dried herbs and vanilla notes. Full and lush on the entry, the palate has great volume and depth. Ripe tannins and a long finish complete the wine. The wine will continue to develop and gain complexity for the next three to six years.
