This wine displays very deep blackish purple color, and is intensely aromatic. Distinctive blackberry and plum-like fruit abound, with nuances of vanilla and cedar. On the palate this wine is imbued with a solid core of bright, juicy Merlot fruit. The plummy fruit is round and mouth-filling, finishing slightly spicy with firm tannins. Great depth and length will give this wine a cellar life of 10 - 12 years.
