Mesmerizing nose of blackcurrant, creme de cassis, violet, cedar, fresh orange peel, cured meat, and forest floor. Gentle and soft on the entry, with parade of flavors echoing the nose. The full body feels deceivingly weightless on the palate, but with great energy and precision. Velvety tannins. The finish lasts for minutes.

Seamless and elegant. Outstanding already at its young age.

Beautiful full body cab. Supple tannins with fruit, earth and herbal overtones. Really nice structure and lasting finish.
