Deep in color, this wine is rich with aromas of dense purple fruits, brambly, blueberry and boysenberry, with notes of leather, tobacco, dark chocolate and cedar. Flavors of fresh strawberries and boysenberries are lush and pronounced on the palate, followed by hints of roasted coffee and maple. This is a big wine that is well-structured and has a long finish. Excellent when served with rich and robust foods, such as bold cheeses and game.
This is the wine that Cyrille sent up when we stayed at the intercontinental for Joan birthday
great mix of tannic edge and smooth rich middle, perfext amount of jam
Excellent for a very inexpensive wine. A superb surprise.
