Powerful notes of bloody meat, dark fruit, flowers, vanilla and baking spices. Black and blue fruits with baking spice on the palate. Big wine. The nearly 16% alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Drink now.

With age it really shows the traditional Rhône notes of petrol and oil on the nose. Make no mistake, pure Napa on the palate.
