Winemaker Notes

Deep dark red. A spicy nose with mature red fruits. Round tannins with powerful complexity. A rich unctuous wine with notes of mature plums, hazelnuts and red fruits. A very rich wine full of harmony and balance.

Wine & Spirits

There are some wines that silence the panel with their greatness, wines that knock us back in our seats to stare, slack jawed. This is one of them. It's not just that it's huge, mouthfilling in flavor and tough as nails; it's more that it's incredibly succulent, as if built out of some sort of stone that gives up juice.

Spicy red fruit flavors are firmed by fine-grained tannins and complemented by notes of succulent herbs and smoky spices. Well-structured but not hard, finishing with very good clarity, sappiness and lingering florality.
