Tannins are sufficient for cellaring yet neatly woven into the texture. Beautifully crafted. Best from 2003 through 2012. 6200 cases made. -JL

Blackberry and cassis appear on the nose with notes of dark chocolate espresso saddle leather and violets complemented by a touch of minerality and a hint of cut grass.
