"A sleeper of the vintage, it offers a dark ruby/purple color, abundant black currant, black cherry, spice, and charcoal aromas, a big, dense, rich style, and 5-7 years of drinkability. Bravo!"

2007 VINTAGE

A sleeper of the vintage, it offers a dark ruby/purple color, abundant black currant, black cherry, spice, and charcoal aromas, a big, dense, rich style, and 5-7 years of drinkability. Bravo!
