The bouquet begins with a hint of violets and darker fruits, including boysenberry, sugarplum and blueberry, which evolve into
subtle yet pleasant notes of toast and earthy dust. There's a beautiful balance to this wine with bright acidity, upfront
sweetness, and soft, round tannins that add viscosity and creaminess to the rich mouthfeel. Flavors of red fruit begin with dark
cherries and cranberries, then give way to darker fruits of blueberry and blackberry, followed by a fusion of toast, dark
chocolate and coffee. The tannins are pronounced, and well integrated, leading into the dusty yet elegant finish, which lingers
with a lovely trace of anise. This wine will improve in the cellar for 1 to 2 years and age well for 7 to 10 years from its release
date. Enjoy with braised pork belly with prunes, chestnut soup blended with foie gras, or simply sip it as an aperitif.
