Saturated red-ruby color. Pure, vibrant nose features smoky black cherry. Rich, sweet and pure, with superb energy to the flavors of black and red cherry and minerals. Impressively dense, broad wine, finishing with excellent lingering perfume and solid spine for aging. In comparison to this wine, the 2005 version seems a bit easier.
Very sweet and a bit tarty on the nose. Jagged with drying tannins and obtrusive acidity.
Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018
