This plush wine begins with earthy aromas that recall underbrush, blue flower, ripe plum, graphite and cake spices. The dense palate delivers concentrated black cherry, black currants, cinnamon and white pepper layered with nuances of dark chocolate. Soft and polished with velvety tannins, this wine is already extremely accessible.
