A bold and powerful nose entices you into this wine. It offers us rich blackberry, blueberry and plum notes with a hint of tobacco. The palate gives way to rich concentrated blackfruit, while the mid palate begins to express the complexity of this wine, giving way to clove and sweet tobacco. The acidity from a cooler vintage, lingers on the finish and is balanced with structure and depth. This wine has many years of ageing potential.
