Complex aromas of toffee, ripe black cherries, black
licorice, tobacco, Christmas spice, and cocoa.


On the palate
it’s a classic Bordeaux beauty, at once dense and
approachable with flavors of grenadine, black tar, and
cherry pie that dance over a weave of chewy silky tannins.
Extremely balanced, the finish lasts for minutes, resonating
a fine mix of plum, cinnamon, and pomegranate. For
long-term aging. (Best now through 2028.)
