Copious quantities of exotic spices and intense fruit launch from the glass. Dense, ripe, and full-bodied, with plush tannins, this magnificent effort displays a core of cassis, blackberry, mocha and caramel complemented by creamy vanilla oak on the prodigious finish. Enjoy tonight after decanting for a distinguished experience we expect to mature gracefully through 2025.
