Intense ruby verging on garnet. Fruity, dry, warm, velvety, harmonious, steady body and soul. Intense aromas, ethereal melting into scents of sweet violet and iris, recalling the berries growing in the woods. Pair with red meats, preferably wild game.

Chopped herb, wild berry, spice and truffle aromas slowly take shape in the glass. The palate shows both concentration and elegance, offering fleshy raspberry, crushed cherry, licorice and crushed mint flavors, bolstered by firm but refined tannins. Drink 2019-2027.

The cherry, milk chocolate, olive, tobacco and earth flavors are backed by dense tannins. The long finish shows enough fruit and balance for the long term. Best from 2020 through 2035. 3,800 cases made.

Deep red. Spicy aromas of redcurrant, cherry, mocha and licorice. Chewy and firmly tannic, offering spicy red cherry and milk chocolate flavors sexed up by a strongly flinty, almost smoky element. The noble tannins gain strength on the finish, which feature outstanding length and insidious sweetness.
