Nose

notes of cassis, cherry, blackberry pie and vanilla with hints of cocoa.

Palate

Entry is plush and densely rich with fine grained tannin leading to a full mid-palate. It finishes long and lush with a lingering touch of fruit and chewy tannins with flavors of cassis, boysenberry, black cherry and slight minerality. Our 2014 shows the typical concentrated palate of the Bon Passe thus we recommend some aerative decanting. The rich fruit and savory flavor profile make it an ideal pairing for grilled meats and hearty dishes.
