Dark garnet in the glass, this wine smells of rich chocolate, black cherry, and cassis aromas. In the mouth, the wine has a fantastic seamlessness about it, a merging of the earthiness and velvet of the tannins with the boysenberry and chocolate of its soul. A lovely chocolate covered raisin and muddy earth note linger in a very long finish.
Made from vines with an average age of 127 years. A tiny bit of Viognier is added to the final blend. Outstanding. have become smooth and polished and the acidity still makes it gulpable. The finish is long and gorgeous.
