- Richly garnet and purple in color, the wine opens with aromas of oak spice and dark black fruits framed with chocolate mocha. The palate is dominated by mountain blackberries, plum, and cassis, accented by black truffles. The fruit is opulent with soft, silky tannins and excellent structure. A wine built for the ages, with much yet to be revealed.
