Nose

Knockout nose of sweet dark cherry, violets, poppy seed cake and the subtle hint of mahogany chest.

Palate

Silky and round in the mouth. An elegant slow-building attack that yields to gorgeous intense cherry and plum flavors with hints of camphor and resiny underbrush. The tannins are ultra refined with no noticeable chalky grip, but with enough time in the mouth, a pleasing firmness emerges. Concentrated flavors with a lingering persistent finish and no hint of alcohol whatsoever at any point in this wine experience.
