This is a very deeply colored red wine, ruby at the rim, garnet-purple in the core. The aromatics are regal with intense strawberry, black plum and raspberry mingling with subtle violets, graphite, and barrel notes of vanilla and toast. The layered palate lingers impressively with smoky oak framing the classic berry and plum finish. Already excellent, especially after 30 minutes in the decanter, this will continue to integrate and harmonize over the next year. Enjoy this serious, velvety-textured Bordeaux now through 2027. Serve it with grilled meats or a slow-cooked leg of lamb.
