Aromas of baking cocoa, dark chocolate, sage, mineral and dried roses. Dense and powerful but the structure has softened with age.


The flavors are very savory, grilled meat, dried cherry, mineral, tobacco, tea and pretty floral notes of rose petal– very complex and long. Sausage, hints of blood and iodine, also stone fruit notes like plum and nectarine. This was a very tightly wound and tannic wine in its youth and still has a lot of tannin present – but really wonderful.
