VinoUS Media Review
Inky ruby. Pungent cherry, dark berries, smoky minerals and dried flowers on the nose. Vibrant and well delineated, displaying sappy blue fruit, floral pastille and peppery spice flavors and a sweetening vanilla note. Finishes broad and smooth, delivering a jolt of minerality and silky, slow-building tannins.
The aromas and fl avors at fi rst appear brooding and savory. Over time more fruity characters emerge matched with a distinctly bright, fresh acidity. The palate has a rich, juiciness about it evoking images of plums and creme de cassis. Chalky tannins grip early and thrust through the entire palate keeping check on the roundness of the fruit. Powerful yet balanced with a whole lot of cellaring potential.
Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Petit Verdot (19%), Merlot (15%)
