Handsome ruby red color. Outstanding and concentrated fruit, with beautiful aromas of red berries, black cherry and hints of tobaccos. A full-bodied wine. Round and velvety in mid-palate, with soft tannins. An added touch of vanilla and toast, followed by a long and smooth finish. Very, very elegant.
"Bright medium ruby. Cassis, menthol, licorice and cocoa powder on the nose, complemented by spicy oak. Juicy, fresh and tight; higher-pitched than the Terroir Series blend and less easy to drink today, but this has more intensity to its dark fruit and spice flavors. Well made, clean and persistent, with nicely integrated acidity and firm tannins calling for year or so of patience."
