This vivacious vintage opens with aromas of cassis, and sandalwood, balanced with layers of dark brambly, boysenberry, and currant. Once in the mouth, smooth tannins layer the palate from front to back, and are filled in with flavors of black cherry, sweet pomegranate, dark chocolate, and roasted coffee. It is extremely rich and mouth coating with a lavish finish of concentrated baking spices such as nutmeg and clove. This wine is remarkable in how it continues to evolve in the glass over the course of a meal. An alcohol level of just 14.1% makes it reminiscent of the nuanced, food-friendly blends of Bordeaux, accessible now and possessing great cellaring potential.
