Winemaker's Notes:

This wine opens with perfumed aromas of black cherry and raspberry, spicy plum and violets. On the palate, blueberry, plum, cassis and earthy notes converge around a fresh core of bright acidity and plush tannin lending this wine structure, vitality and grace. There is precision in the expression of fruit and an elegant yet ample succulent structure that progresses to a finish that is long and lasting with hints of blueberries, spiced cherries, exotic incense and fresh rose petals. This lovely wine is drinking well now but may also be enjoyed over the next five to eight years with proper cellaring
