Tasting Notes/Press
• Graphite, mineral, plum, cassis, dark fruits and dark chocolate aromas translate to the same wonderful flavors on the palate. Broad and penetrating, with a really compelling energetic core of mineral, black cherry and savory herb notes. Fantastic texture and length and a long complex finish that shows off beautifully integrated tannin. A lot of complexity, detail and classic character here.
