The wine has a reddish purple color with a deeper violet tint. Concentration on the nose is revealed with great refinement and complexity. Black cherry and vanilla aromas give way to deeper, smoky, peaty notes along with blond tobacco and dried flowers. Refinement is everywhere on the palate as the lush and creamy attack expands over well-integrated tannins to mingle with generous and varied flavors reminiscent of morello cherry and almonds, with a slightly marine cast. The finish, flavorful and fresh with great tension, displays dark chocolate, saline and mineral notes.
Tasty, showing warm plum and anise notes that have melded nicely with hints of black tea, singed applewood and tobacco, offering an iron twinge through the finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2020.
