Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Intense ruby red color. Black cherry, mixed berries, crisp, with a vegetal nose of fresh tomato leaves and minerals. Full-bodied, sweet tannins, impeccably balanced wood and acidity with a long, fine finish, very elegant. Should last 25 years.

Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.
