(From 2011 Vintage) Complex, with ripe melon, grass, figs and apples characteristics, full bodied, the aftertaste long in the ripe blackcurrant, cherry, cocoa and new oak flavors, yet is subtlely balanced and harmonious. Showcases preternaturally gorgeous tannins, soft and sweet.
This attractive blend is loaded with floral and bright fruit qualities. Aromas of cherry, violet and sweet vanilla meld with supple flavors of currant, red berry, a hint of cappuccino and toasty oak. The wine is nicely balanced with great length on the finish. The richness and ample fruit make it a fine choice to enjoy now but it will also improve with additional aging through 2018.
