Crushed blackberry with hints of rose and lightly stewed fruits. Full-bodied with a beautiful core of fruit and velvety tannins. The finish is long and beautiful. This is beautifully crafted. Best after 2013. -JS

Fruity and supple but a bit simple combining a candied quality and some green notes in the middle plate. Lacks real depth and finishes with a repeating suggestion of candied fruits.
