A truly monumental effort promising to deliver copious pleasure now through 2025+! Inky dark purple, with a bouquet of incense and balsamic interwoven with blackberry, blueberry and hints of truffle and camphor, this wine is full-bodied, opulent and voluptuously textured, with an intensely satisfying mid-palate, depth and richness. Primary notes of blackberry, olive tapenade, and creme de cassis soar to impressive high tone hints of pipe tobacco and truffles. This show-stopper hits the palate with a silky opulence, and marvelous, full-bodied power, but it is light on its feet, with superb delineation, vibrancy, and freshness.
