A bouquet of dark, berried, inky fruit with plenty of sawdusty/smoky oak. While it’s warm with alcohol it remains smooth, supple and persistent. t’s all blackcurrant, bay leaves and aforementioned oak on the pallet. Tannin is fine-grained. This is a complete and harmonious wine with great persistence of flavor.
Wine Spectator(2015 Vintage) Dense tannins and flavors are packed into this wine, with briny Kalamata olive and black licorice nuances to the core of plum, cassis, sage, tobacco and cedar flavors, which fan out on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 4,300 cases imported.–MW
