  • Tasting notes

    The nose offers elegant aromas of spices, fresh thyme and rosemary, red berries, cassis and raspberries, with layers of cedar. The mouthfeel is full and rich with cassis, raspberries and notes of black pepper and oregano. The finish is bright and fresh with finely grained tannins.

    (from a 2002 planting): Dark ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry, black cherry, minerals, violet, dark chocolate and licorice are complemented by harmonious oak tones of chocolate and mocha. Juicy, penetrating yet seamless wine with lovely intensity and clarity of flavor. Urgent dark fruits are complicated by a spicy quality. Shows lovely inner-mouth lift and a light touch. The rising finish features firm, suave tannins and a touch of peppery herbs. This is excellent.
