Intense, dark, deep, brooding nose with complex aromas of black cherry, roasted plum, black licorice, garrigue, pencil shavings, and black pepper.  The palate envelops with sweet earthy tones, black cherry, and baking spice.  Tightly wound, fine, gripping tannin and structured acidity give way to a long, complex finish.  Potential for medium to long term cellaring.  Enjoy this wine now through 2026.
