Rich black fruit aromas, over currant jam, vanilla, and sweet cedar, with hints of smoky tobacco. Full and robust on the palate, with a burst of blackberry and cassis, followed by baking chocolate, clove, and earthy notes. Long, smooth finish, ending with toasted and caramel notes. A beautiful wine.
Cellar notes: Decant before drinking now or cellar two to five years (or longer) for it to fully mature.
