Tasting Notes

Pretty aromas of red fruits open to flavors of more cherries, cranberries and raspberries with hints of tobacco and enticing baking spice. The tannins are balanced but still structured by beautiful acidity, hinting at this wine’s longevity. Flavors of cherry, cedar and spice linger on the long finish. Decant and enjoy immediately or allow to breathe for an hour. Drink through 2026 in 750mL bottles and 2031 in 1.5L magnum bottles, as well as 3L through 2036 and 6L through 2041.
