Hand harvested between Oct 2-11. Table sorted 3 times. 100% new oak from eight coopers. Bright ruby red color. Beautifully fruit forward aromas of black fruits (plum black cherry and blueberry) complimented by some earthy tones as well. This has a lot going on. Supple mouth-feel supported by fine tannins and an excellent finish. Well done! 6500 cases. Jean-Philippe Fort consults.
