Notes: This powerhouse wine offers up an intoxicating nose of crushed violets, peppercorns, blackberries and seared ribeye. Flavors of blueberries, black licorice and espresso give way to a full-bodied, seamless and gorgeously textured mid-palate. This is a wine of great complexity and power, but also of purity and nuance – And while it is drinking fantastic now, it will benefit from a few years in your cellar.
