(From 2010 Vintage) Robust, yet light and floral, with the complexity to satisfy an IPA lover.
(From 2012 Vintage) Dark garnet-ruby color. A mix of small red fruits - raspberries, currants, cherries, rhubarb and pomegranate - with toffee and cola nut, beginning to show secondary characteristics. In the mouth, the varied fruits harmonize with the full, ripe tannins characteristic of the very classic 2008 vintage. The freshness of this wine is impeccable; it has lost all of its baby fat and evolved positively in the bottle. The finish is long and dry and ends with licorice, mineral and fruit.
