Chocolate, coffee and plum cake , and violet aromas lead to a dense, rich middle of black cherry and blackberry with an oaken-grape edge. Cinnamon, truffle, and a touch of pepper.

2009 vintage. Big dense wine. Dark chocolate, blackberries. Tannins and oak. Nice with a grilled steak. Maybe better in a year or two.

Lovely red. Wished I had a case of it. Went well with grilled steaks I would serve this wind to any guest.

We had both '06 vintage bottles. One was fabulous with an intense fruit and smokey flavor. The other was weaker. More stringent fruit with weak flavor. The better '06 bottle would rate a 9.3 I my book. Tie other bottle 8.7.
