On the nose, dark, floral currants, blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, poached strawberries, crushed dry rocks, dry stones, tobacco leaf and fresh dark & red florals with deep violets.

The body is full. Tannins are firm but round. Dark floral currants, blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries, poached strawberries, crushed dry rocks, dry stones, dry underbrush, dark spices, leather, dark, moist soil, cedar, tobacco leaf, graphite and fresh dark & red florals with deep violets. The acidity is excellent. The structure, tension and length are superb. The finish is really good but but will blossom in 15 plus years and will cellar 30-40 years easily. It’s well balanced fruit & earth.
