This very impressive dark ink colored wine is gorgeous from the beginning with an intense and powerful nose of licorice, Asian spices, sweet black cherry and kirsch.
It evolves on the mid-palate with beautiful textured layers of black concentrated fruits and then, this seamless wine finishes with refined tannins, more dark fruits, French vanilla oak notes and a great purity that lingers on the palate.
In 2009, the mini-valley of Roy Estate produced very small yields resulting in exquisite, extremely concentrated wines.
