An elegant, full-bodied wine of deep color with aromas and flavors of black currants and other black and red berries as well as the tannic structure to age well.
Serve with sophisticated dishes such as game and sauced meats.
"Medium red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant, mocha and chocolatey oak. Fresh and lively in the mouth, with stony mineral energy giving the wine a light touch. Really wonderfully detailed wine, with vibrant red fruit and rose petal elements that reminded me of a Rousseau wine. An excellent example from very shallow soil over stones. 92-94 points "

"Conspicuous wood marks the otherwise attractive and fresh nose of spice, stone, red currant and smoked black tea aromas. There is good detail to the very round and smooth medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a firm, austere and ever-so-mildly astringent finish. This may round out but I prefer to remain cautious and hence the wider than normal predicted range.
Barrel Sample: 86-90 Points"
