A glass-coating opaque purple color, this wine displays an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, lavender, and blackberry. Ripe, succulent, and structured.
"The 2009 JC Vizcarra spent 18 months in 50% new French and American oak. Brooding black fruits, violets, mineral, and licorice inform the nose of an opulent, ripe, confiture-like, nicely proportioned, spicy wine that will continue to fill out over the next 2-3 years. Enjoy this outstanding value from 2013 to 2024."
