Tasting Notes

Delicate in aroma recently with more oak notes, but the palate is beautiful and expressive, exuding concentrated flavors of red currant, dried cherry, and blackberry with a hint of vanilla and coconut from oak aging. Lush prevalent tannins balance and support this medium-bodied wine. If you have a bottle, hold onto it for another year or two before opening. It will continue to age gracefully until 2025 in 750mL sized bottles, 2030 in 1.5L bottles, 2035 in 3 liter and 2045 in 6-liter format.
