This well musculed 3rd growth has great concentration is sleek and seamless, full-bodied and layered with refined tannins and finely beaded acidity. The harmonious palate presents black fruits, dark cherry, cedar, licorice, leather, tobacco, and hints of dark chocolate and smoke. The finish is elegant and long. Drink with a rib roast.
