Current Vintage 2009
This wine has a vibrant dark, ruby red rim, leading to a dark red core. The nose is filled with cherry fruit and secondary aromas of roses and violets along with a distinctive sandalwood note also present.
On the palate, dark fruits are front and center with black cherry, plum and blackberries al in the mix. The finish brings that wood note back and nicely balanced acidity and tannin to keep the wine fresh and lively. This is a complex wine that will benefit from some time in the glass or in a decanter prior to enjoying.
