Tasting Notes

A notably ripe yet still fresh nose speaks of liqueur-like aromas of plum, black cherry and plenty of earth and floral nuances and in particular violet. The cool, sleek and intense broad-shouldered flavors possess a velvety, even seductive, mid-palate mouthfeel along with good power on the stony, complex and solidly persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth. The supporting tannins are ripe and firm and sufficiently dense that this will likely need 15 to 18 years to reach full maturity.
