An elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, with an underpinning of smoky mineral and flavors of baked blackberry, herbed olive and toast. Well-spiced, with creamy tannins and a lasting, fresh finish. Drink now through 2029.
Saturated violet. Dark berries, candied licorice, vanilla and a spicy black pepper accent on the oak-spiced nose. Supple and appealingly sweet, offering ripe blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors complicated by suggestions of vanilla and floral pastilles. Broad, fleshy and appealingly jammy, finishing very long and smooth, with a repeating vanilla note and slow-building tannins.
