It was aged in 100% new French and American oak for 21 months. It is opaque purple/black with a spectacular bouquet of pain grille pencil lead truffle lavender anise mulberry and plum. Loaded on the palate and already complex this sweetly-fruited wine is surprisingly elegant as well as powerful the iron fist in the velvet glove. It has a finish lasting over 60 seconds and will offer a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2035.

Subtle aromas of mulled spice hints of fresh leather and nicoise olive slowly appear. Elegant and pure in its expression aromas of sandalwood meat and marinade appear later. The palate is also elegant in its profile with an incredibly long finish that is spicy and flavored with black olive while refreshing acidity adds some lightness. Tannins are subtle smoky and spicy with hints of pepper yet this wine shows a very refined style with a precise and focused presence and flavors that linger forever. Needs a few years to show its hidden power.
