Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red with bright violet tones. Ripe black fruit rimmed with hints of tobacco, damp earth, chocolate and toasted oak. On entering the mouth, good body, spicy. Wine that must be aged in the bottle to soften its formidable tannins.

"Ripe and focused, with suave toast carrying the dark currant and blackberry as coffee, mineral and vanilla notes ripple underneath. Lengthy finish, too, with nice, latent concentration."
-Wine Spectator
