Please note the image is of a representative bottle. For pictures of the actual bottle please contact the store.
Opulent aroma, with big blackberry, earth and spice and a hint of cigar box. Full-bodied and muscular, with a core of ripe fruit and silky tannins. Neverending finish.
The nose is pure, freshly crushed berries and cherries with lilacs. Full-bodied and very, very concentrated, with big, ripe, powerful tannins, but it's all in harmony and length. Layers of fabulous fruit. It's just a baby. Wait and watch it grow up into something amazing. Best after 2012. 250 cases made.
Rated 99 Points Wine Spectator
What a wine. A deep and powerful wine with a full body, super silky tannins, and a lengthy finish. The power is mind-blowing, reminiscent of something like a 1998 Cheval Blanc, but better. This still has some life left in it. Check back in 2015.
