(From 2012 Vintage) The wine is a classic, rich with black fruits, cocoa, hints of tobacco and leather melding seamlessly with traces of minerality from the alluvial stones the vines thrive in graced by a constant supply of glacial melt water. The wine is fat, layered and boldly rich, an expressive wine with a long luxurious lingering finish that will pair with almost any food and yet stands alone as well.
A powerhouse of lush black fruit, silky cocoa, black spice and cream, wrapped around blackberry, cherry and ripe plum in the nose. Sweet anise, hints of tobacco, black chocolate, more cherries and exotic spices, layers of jam follow on the palate. Pure, rich and very elegant, this wine will stand and perform anytime you think of a cabernet and want something just a little more exotic.
Delicious with espresso rubbed skirt steak! Hints of chocolate and lush black cherry. So good, we bought a second bottle before finishing the first!
A steak dinner somewhat overpowered the wine, but continuing to drink it after the meal was quite pleasant. Nice body, with black cherry finish.
