Amazing aromas of wet aged beef, spices, crushed elderberries, peppercorns and bay leaf. Evolves in the glass all the time. Dynamic wine. Full body and polished, fully integrated tannin to the fruit. Finishes very fresh and vivid. Gorgeous to drink now, but will age wonderfully.
Concentrated and effusive, featuring notes of tar, white truffle, Kalamata olive, chocolate and loamy earth, which give way to chocolate-covered cherry and plum compote flavors and accents of Earl Grey tea and dried lavender. Shows plenty of generosity to the flavors, but also refinement and elegance, with smooth, velvety tannins and a long, expressive finish.
