($68) Good ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of cherry, minerals, bitter chocolate and licorice.Supple, dense, broad and dry, with good restraint to its redcurrant, cherry and floral flavors. Nicely tactile and mouthcoating but light on its feet.Finishes subtly aromatic, with a fine dusting of tannins.

Impeccable balance, depth and concentration, combining rich, dense currant, anise, sage and berry flavors with a mix of cedary oak and spice. Finishes with a push of fruit and ripe, firm tannins.
