A beautiful floral, black raspberry and blackcurrant nose soars from this dense ruby/purple wine. Medium-bodied, beautifully rich and layered, the emphasis is on discreet yet intense flavors, power allied with elegance, and wonderfully supple, lush tannins. This wine has great balance, purity, and presence on the palate and should evolve beautifully for two decades or more.- RP collapse

The herbal notes hint at the exotic addition of Carmenere and spicy Petit Verdot. The body is full, smooth and ripe, the firm and fine mesh of tannins supple and elastic. This charms with generosity and warmth alongside its firm but approachable structure.
