Well balanced with a nose and flavors of raspberry, plum, and cherry, leading into notes of vanilla, coconut, and spice on the palate. Lots of structure and balanced tannins make this a great wine to pair with food. Enjoy!

From a superb year, this wine saw all French oak, but an ongoing reduction in exposure to new barrels brought the percentage down to 60%. Young and muscular, the blend of black fruits, sweet oak and toasty spice is focused and compelling. Pure fruit flavors include black cherry and plum, smooth and concentrated, with a smoky kick in the lingering finish.

Dense and chewy, featuring a sweetness and suppleness that make the earthy cherry and blackberry flavors weave through the tannins, emerging on the long finish with finesse. Best from 2012 through 2016.
