It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and gives up beautifully fragrant red rose, lilacs and damp soil notions with a core of warm plums, mulberries, spice cake and tobacco plus a waft of iron ore. Full, rich, opulent and oh-so-sexy, the palate exudes lovely warm black fruit and spice layers, finishing long and plushly textured. 308 cases produced.- LPB

Possessing medium to full-bodied richness, a supple, seamless texture, and plenty of underlying structure, drink it over the coming 10-15 years.
