A deep ruby hue is the backdrop to a luxurious palate with bold, rounded tannins and minerality. This wine exemplifies this property by providing satisfying acidity and immense depth. This vintage will age beautifully for the next 15 years.

Wine Profile
Ratings
96 points from James Suckling. "Dark berries, iron shavings and sliced green top strawberries. Really aromatic. Medium to full body with firm tannins that open beautifully and spread across the palate. Lots of concentrated fruit on the center palate. Savory at the end. Needs time to open. Give it two or three years."
