This is one of my favorite high-end wines. Even at the $95 price tag, it is almost as good as Bevan's single vineyard designated red wines that sell for twice the price. Inky purple in color. The nose has cassis, coffee, black cherries, chocolate and graphite. Full bodied. On the palate, this has muscular tannins but plenty of fruit to match up with it. Juicy cassis and black cherries with underlying graphite and spice. This drinks beautifully now but should evolve and improve over the next five to seven years and drink well for ten to fifteen after that. It will need big foods right now such as a steak or roast or drink it on its own.
