Tasting Note: Dark cherries and baked plums are unfolding from the glass, transitioning into wild thyme and violets with impressions of cassis, sandalwood, and cinnamon. A complex wine with a firm tannin structure, yet smooth mouthfeel. The supporting role of oak intensifies the underlying dark cacao and spicy characters. Cellar 8 to 15 years.
