    Item no. 102404

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Color: Deep dark red with purple hints.

    Nose: Intense black fruit aromas, blackcurrant and black pepper combined with delicate notes of sage, tobacco and Provence herbs. spices come back at the finish to add complexity.

    Mouth: soft tannins with a firm body. Well balanced structure, good acidity and long aftertaste.

    Service and Food Pairing: ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16-18°. Ideal companion meats and elaborate dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Quite toasty, with cocoa powder and espresso notes up front, followed by muscular macerated currant and fig fruit flavors mingling with a maduro tobacco hint. The long, fleshy finish has a nice graphite edge lurking underneath. Needs to settle in, but should age nicely. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made.

    When I first opened it, I thought the alcoholic smell was rather strong and tasted a bit harsh. But let it breath for about 20 minutes. Wonderful black fruit and vanilla. Peppery.
