Aromas of fresh black cherry and plum, layered with dark chocolate, lavender, baking spice, and crushed rock. The palate is silky with ripe fruit all framed by precise tannins. Sourced primarily from hillside vineyards the wine is structured and full bodied, but with exquisite balance of intense flavors of cassis, violets and herbs, creamy texture and freshness. Small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot bring depth and nuance. While inviting now, this wine will grow in complexity as flavors marry with time. Enjoy now through 2025 and beyond.
Pairs great with steak, burger, beef short ribs, roast or grilled lamb, portobello mushrooms, and hard cheeses.
