Best of Vintage 2011

Inky ruby. Smoke-accented dark berry, cherry pit and pipe tobacco scents, along with hints of vanilla and cigar box. On the palate, gently sweet cassis and cherry flavors unfold slowly with air, displaying very good energy and back-end lift. Chewy tannins come on slowly on the long, spice-accented finish, which leaves a hint of bitter cherry behind. This elegantly styled wine has the balance to reward patience.
