Nose

amazingly elegant fragrance of violets, rose petals and tea leaf, it has a tight, firm tannic structure.

Palate

The tannins have a slight dusty quality yielding more grip than the other varietals of the vintage. Dark chocolate and coffee enrich flavors of black currant and cassis. Slightly wider on the palate than the 2014, this wine is very approachable now, while its beautiful balance and long trailing finish remind us of its cellar potential.
