Everything is perfectly woven from the first whiff and right on through the pallet to the lingering, long finish. Abundant fruit aromas of black cherry, currant, and black raspberry combine with dark chocolate, giving incredible depth to this wine, now in its adolescence. The flavors roll forward, layer after layer, with generous dark fruits and a milk chocolate ganache richness. Amazing potential lies ahead for this vintage, which, with decanting and food, is quite approachable now and will improve with time.
