Overview

Bright ruby red with a deep purplish hue. Juicy, ripe plum and cassis aromas, with a hint of tobacco box and fine leather. The palate opens with ripe dark cherries and forest fruits with a soft acid complimenting the fine tannins, overlaid with a subtle smoky lift that comes from the judicious French oak maturation. Deliciously soft with a rich, velvety mouthfeel.
