There's a fresh, ripe and juicy fruit component to this red, but also tobacco and mint notes. Vibrant and structured, ending with a long finish.

This gorgeously scented effort possesses the most elegant nose in the range of 09s with ultra-pure aromas of red and black cherry plus notes of wet stone, earth and almost invisible wood spice notes. There is excellent richness and volume to the beautifully delineated and equally pure middle weight flavors that display a suave mouth feel on the lightly mineral-inflected and vibrant finish.
