One swirl and sniff. Just one. That’s all its going to take to put you firmly under its spell! Soft and seductive scents of chopped Valrhona chocolate, grilled plums, mid-summer violets, and soft vanilla caresse you in the most appealing way, at once satisfying and stimulating! Then the brilliance of the 2016 vintage comes into full view with a palate that provides irrefutable evidence that the fruit for this Red was picked at the absolute peak of that triumphant growing season! Luscious blackberry jam and cassis liqueur are accented by a generous pop of toasty oak providing even more density and richness to this Merlot heavy blend. The finish delivers that classic Bordeaux tannin and earthy dryness but the fruit and oak lend so much generosity that the wine never feels hard or edgy. Instead it bursts with character offering long-lingering layers of tar, tobacco, chocolate walnut blondie, and liquified mineral with an interplay between sweet and savory characteristics that will make even the most seasoned wine snobs stop dead in their tracks to contemplate it. It will be a flawless companion for nice rare Prime Rib roast, a steaming bowl of classic boeuf bourguignon, or garlic and rosemary studded boneless leg of lamb! Decant this beauty before service or cellar through 2025.
