Remarkably beautiful nose with aromas of blackberries and violets. There are scents of fresh perfumey fruit with just enough sweet oak to tether it down a bit. As the pallet continues to develop, the rich, ripe blackberries arise to a big rounded mid-palate. The tannins have some grip to them and there is a long powerful finish. This wine has all the elements to age beautifully over time.
