It is much more evolved, offering aromas of ripe blackberry, blackcurrant fruit and graphite. Aged in barrel for 27 months in new and one-year old oak, it displays an elegant palate, good structure and balance, firm but polished tannins and a long finish. A lovely wine that is also food friendly and elegant with alcohol held in check.
This intense, impressively extracted wine is one of serious and obvious intent right from the start. Its compact, deeply filled nose of ripe berries, stones, dark soils and spice are followed up with lengthy, like-minded flavors, and, if a fairly potent and muscular wine, it is surprisingly well-structured and never become muscle bound. It's minor touch of finishing heat is a small price to pay for this kind of richness and depth, and there is little question that it will age famously and should improve for years to come.
Inky ruby. Blackberry liqueur, licorice, pipe tobacco and mocha on the highly perfumed nose. Plush, broad and deep but lively as well, offering sappy dark fruit flavors and notes of candied flowers and vanilla. Bright acidity adds focus and lift to an impressively long, smooth and subtly tannic finish that repeats the floral note.
