Tasting Notes

One of the greatest examples of this Cuvee. It's dense black/purple colour is accompanied by celestial aromas of melted licorice, blackberries, cassis, incense, anise, and toasty oak. Fabulously concentrated, with great purity, an unctuous, viscious texture, and an amazingly long 60-second plus finish, this fabulous baby will need 5-6 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the following 20-25 years.
