About

99

This is a ripe and generous wine, with tannins that are well integrated into the powerful black-fruit core. It is rich in a black plum flavor that's cut by fine acidity. Complex, balanced and full of long-term potential, drink this impressive wine from 2029.

96 Wine Spectator

Densely packed, with a wall of baker's chocolate up front, followed by muscular black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Shows waves of brambly grip through the finish, along with flashes of apple wood and Turkish coffee. A big wine. Best from 2035 through 2055. 830 cases made. –JM

Product Description:

"This wine has an opaque, almost black colour. The aroma is intense and complex, with prominent notes of well-ripened black fruit, resin as well as hints of cocoa and chocolate as a result of its excellent maturation. Great volume on the palate with a vibrant and fresh acidity, firm high quality tannins, floral notes of rockrose and hints of black fruit and chocolate. A great invitation for a very long and elegant finish." - Winery
