Big and ripe, with tobacco, blackberry and fresh-cut lumber on the nose. This big boy weighs in at 15%, so the chocolate, cassis and rich blackberry flavors on the palate should not come as a surprise. Toasty and plush; a model New World red from Jacques and François Lurton and partner Michel Rolland. Imported by Monsieur Touton Selection Ltd.
