#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
Focused cherry and ripe cranberry envelop the glass, followed by intense black plum, sage, and Herbs de Provence. In the background there is a dusting of cocoa, lavender and rose.
Dark red and blue fruits drive down the center of your palate and slowy melt into all areas of the mouth. Focused acidity and supportive tannins carry the rich dark fruit character towards the midpalate, followed by creamy black cherry and cranberry. The intense start is followed by a slow release of complex flavors and textures which lead to a long and lingering finish.
