Amazingly rich wine reveals notes of graphite, blackberries, cassis, licorice, and incense. A judicious touch of new French oak along with superb concentration, and intense, but sweet, well-integrated tannin.
Tightly wound, with excellent structure, this is dense and concentrated, showing a mix of currant, anise, mineral, pencil lead and cedary oak, all sharply focused and well-proportioned. 495 cases made.
Brooding black fruit, mineral and licorice aromas, with some earthy and truffley soil tones. Ripe, fresh and nicely layered, with the black fruit flavors showing a distinctly rocky character.
