Tasting Notes

“Raised for 36 months in American barriques, the nose takes time to unfold and offers scents of singed leather, sous-bois and pressed flowers. The palate is nicely balanced with fleshy supple tannins and a good acidity, the finish is understated, very natural with tart red cherries and strawberry, interlaced with dried tobacco. Drink now to 2019+.” (Rated 92, Best Buy, Neal Martin, RobertParker.com)
