Abundant aromas of cherry, raspberry and chocolate layer with floral notes and an array of spices-clove, cinnamon, black pepper and vanilla. Full-bodied, elegant and integrated on the palate, the wine delivers an ample mix of concentrated black and red fruit-berries, plums, and cranberries. Silky tannins support a mid-palate that has more layers than a mille-feuille. An elongated finish echoes the fruit and notes of chocolate and spice. Approachable now but will reward cellaring. In its youth, decant for a least an hour to fully open the many layers of this wine. Drink 2012 to 2025.
