Beautiful blackberry and blueberry aromas with hints of spices and wild mushrooms. Full-bodied with tight, firm and silky tannins. Try after 2024.

Medium/full-bodied, firm, yet elegant, this silky textured display of flowers, plums, truffles and cocoa is fresh, focused, earthy and concentrated. This will age and evolve quite well. Read more...
