This is a stunning wine that's loaded with flavor and complexity. The vibrant bouquet boasts assertive, fruity aromas of kirsch, blueberry and blackberry, alongside notes of iris, dark chocolate and a touch of sweet tobacco. The palate is full and ripe, with powerful, dense black-fruit and berry flavors that are laced with a hint of cream and sweet cocoa. Firm yet well-integrated tannins grip the long finish. Decadent now, but should hold nicely through 2017.
