True Claret, with the blended complexity of a traditional Bordeaux and the elegance and mouth feel of a less complicated wine. A nose of bright red currant, Bing cherries, plum jam, and ripe figs. Wonderfully ripe fruit balanced with some tight structure on the nose with toasted bread and nutmeg. An open textured mid palette with a mildly structured finish. An elegant, but powerful wine.
