A juicy, vibrant entry with notes of mint and fresh plum is interwoven with supple, textured tannins and acidity on the long, complex finish. Ten consecutive vintages of 90+ point scores from Wine Spectator as of 2018 vintage.
The wine is a deep garnet-red in colour. Intense aromas of ripe blackberry, plum and raspberry combine with hints of balsamic and warm spicy notes of pepper and tobacco. On the palate, it is full-bodied with firm but ripe tannins and balanced acidity, culminating in a long and complex finish.
