Deep cherry-red color. Elegant and complex nose, with ripe red fruit, cedar, tobacco and chocolate notes. Well-structured and nicely concentrated, firm and full-bodied. With long finish and good balance.
Extended time on the vine produced rich notes of plum and blackberry. Expect a warm, jam-filled nose with a tannic yet soft mouth-feel. Aging 18 months in small French barrels adds a vanilla-toasty finish.
