The wine is deep intense garnet in the glass with a harmonious nose of blackcurrants and blackberries. A swirl will reveal a slight eucalyptus note mixed with fresh cigar, cedar and spicy vanilla followed by a layer of blueberries, graphite and stony notes, dried thyme and just a touch of smoke.
The mouth displays vibrant but soft tannins, a smooth texture, and a long, elegant finish. Another sip reveals hints of berry, balsamic and tobacco. This wine will continue to age well over the next 15-20 years, but drinks beautifully today.
