Tasting Note

Deep garnet towards royal purple at the rim. On the nose, crushed raspberries, ripe purple plums and cassis, as well as a hint of smoke and freshly rolled cigars. Medium, perhaps medium to full-bodied, with great purity of fruit, and a suave, almost velvety texture yet not overly extracted. The palate echoes the nose with lush red fruit, black currants, tobacco, followed by graphite, freshly turned earth, minerals, Cuban cigars, medium acidity with fine grained tannins and notes of dark chocolate on the long and elegant finish. This is a superbly well-crafted, racy and elegant wine with a classy, almost aristocratic personality, as well as a remarkable structure.
