Garnet in color. Immediately rich and complex, with racy violet, rose, black cherry and dark licorice, complemented by notes of white pepper, cloves and soft leather. An intriguing mineral character adds to the bouquet. Full and mouth-coating on entry and throughout the mid- palate, the wine shows layers of ripe, dark and juicy fruits, black cherry, plum and sweet blueberry. Licorice and dark chocolate notes further enhance the complexity.

Aromas of rose, red berry and eucalyptus mingle with whiffs of exotic spice on the gorgeous, fragrant red. Loaded with finesse and tension, the elegant, structured palate delivers crushed raspberry, white pepper and star anise set against fresh acidity and taut, lithe tannins. It's already compelling, but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2022-2036.

This gorgeous red evokes rose, strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit, shaded by tobacco, tar and wild thyme notes. Pure, sleek and intense, with a firm base of tannins and vibrant acidity for support. This should evolve beautifully. Be patient. Best from 2022 through 2043. 1,800 cases imported.
