Notes of rose petals, blackberry jam and cocoa followed by tobacco, bing cherries and a touch of pencil shavings.
In the mouth, a soft attack of shaved dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, mocha and caramel adds great complexity to the beautiful dark fruit. The mid-palate weight is layered & well balanced with seductive and silky integrated tannins evolving to some smoke notes coming from the new Taransaud French Oak.
