Tasting Notes

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis mingle with hints of violet and dark chocolate to seduce and intrigue. The palate is inviting and silky, with a vivid core of cassis that defines every sip, balanced by a backbone of acidity and a smooth tannin structure. This Bordeaux blend style wine’s never-ending, layered finish makes it enjoyable now or the 750mL cellarworthy through 2026 and 1.5L bottles through 2034. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
