(From 2007 Vintage) The 2008 vintage is a rich garnet color and has aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and cassis. There are also nuances of leather, toasted hazelnut and winter spices. On the palate, this firmly textured wine offers a full mouthfeel with flavors of coffee, chocolate-covered cherries, berry tart and currants. The tannins are very well integrated, making the approachable at an early age. There are multiple layers to this complex blend that reveal themselves through decanting or by giving the wine time to open up in the glass.
