This wine has a lovely deep, dark, purple core with a vivid, violet rim. On the nose, aromas of cassis, black currants, blackberry, truffles and complex earth tones are prevalent with a hint of tobacco and clove. The silky, elegant tannins complement the earthy, cassis, currants and truffles on the palate, while hints of chocolate and ripe, red fruits also shine through. The finish is clean and long, leaving a desire for more! Drink mid 2011 through 2020, with longer aging possible with proper cellaring. Decanting is recommended for optimal enjoyment.
