(From 2012 Vintage) Deep Garnet with gorgeous dark cherry fruit aromas. Deeply aromatic with notes of ripe plum, dark chocolate, baking spice, caramel, and vanilla, all interwoven into a complex nose. Seamless entry, with a smooth palate of rich, soft tannins are supported by layers of blackberry, plum, cocoa, and sage. Very dense and textural, yet gracious. The mouthfilling palate leads to a long, beautiful finish of plum, anise with clove, and toasty oak notes.
