Winemaker's Notes:

Starts with concentrated ripe dark fruit framed by powerful tannins. The nose shows creamy cassis, vanilla and blueberry character as well as stone, earth and herb undertones. The tannins gain momentum on the midpalate and are supple and solid and grip the finish. Needs four years to uncoil and then will remain in prime form for another decade after that.
