It has a rounded, iodine-tinged bouquet with great purity and panache, the oak seamlessly integrated with scents of black coffee developing over time. The palate is medium- bodied with a fleshy texture, crisp acidity and very fine tannins. It has a velvety, caressing texture with blackberry cassis and espresso towards the precise, supple finish. This is an accomplished, flavor-packed wine that should repay a few months cellaring. Drink now 2013-2018.
