$99.95
RatingNot Yet Rated

2018 offers a pretty spectacular vintage for this cuvee, which is a bit more concentrated and structured (decant or cellar for the best experience). The nose is intense and forward with fresh, ripe red fruits and sweet spices with a hint of leather. Dark chocolate makes a promise that that palate keeps, full-bodied and almost creamy with soft, well-integrated tannins and candied fruit notes. The finish is long and dusty, drawing you back in for more.
