Nose

Black Rose and currant aromatics with hints of graphite minerality that carry onto the palate.

Palate

The nose evolves into a black cherry compote. Structured and well balanced, yet rich and complex along the lines of Premiere Grand Cru Bordeaux. While this wine drinks well upon release its aging potential is at lease 10-15+ years with proper storage.

Winemaking

Partially punched cap fermented and barrels aged for 32 months with only one racking prior to blending.

Aging

Extended barrel aging adds to the complexity and mouthfeel. This is an unusual treatment for wines in this day and age except for the wines of Barolo and Brunello.
