Dark reddish purple. Lovely nose of blackberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, and licorice as well as graphite and cedar. Full bodied with concentrated and juicy dark fruit and soft tannins on the palate. Blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and 3% Merlot. 14.6% ABV.

Super thick and rich. Deep ruby red. Feels like it doesn't end. Tons of dark fruits and dark baking spices on the palate. Moderate plus tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Long and never ending finish. Similar on the nose as the palate. Drink till 2031.
