(2012 Vintage) A full-bodied wine of intense red fruit flavor and and elegantly supple texture supported by ripe, silky tannins. The Merlot in the blend is expressed in sweet black fruit with overall aromas of ripe, concentrated berries offset by restrained spicy oak notes.
DecanterRating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. A bit 'dumb' due to recent bottling, but has wonderful 'sweet' fruit and a fantastic length. Will be worth waiting for. Drink 2007-15. (JH)
