On the nose, lightly candied styled fruits of; dark cherries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries and pomegranate. Cinnamon, vanilla, light loamy soils and fresh dry dark florals. On the palate, dry M+ tannins & black currants. Round, full, rich and juicy fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, cherries, blueberries and strawberries. Dry crushed rocks, gritty volcanic minerals, leather graphite, tobacco leaf and ash, light; cinnamon, clove & nutmeg, spice-box. The long finish shows softer, dusty tannins. It's also showing some good bottle evolution since I had it last Spring. As well, the structure, texture, length & finish are improved. Photos of their beautiful wood wall storage cabinet in the main dining room and another perspective of the terrace view.

Super dark cassis, expresso roast, black tea, big tannins and very good acidity. Dark rich moist black soil, crushed dry rocks, leather, anise, milk & dark chocolate. Great balance, length, structure. This wine is a 30-50 year wine.
