Discounted shipping on 12 bottles. Free shipping on 24 or more.
Dark purple wine. Voluptuous nose of dusty blackberry, raspberry fruit with hints of graphite and sour cherry. Medium/full-bodied (13.5% alcohol) on the palate, with blackberry and cherry wrapped in firm tannins. Decanting softens the tannins, but nothing will be better than bottle age. The finish is tight at first with fine, grippy tannins but opens up with air to reveal a streak of crème de cassis. Truly a "Cellar Selection" made in the traditional Bordelaise style, this wine will pair beautifully in the near term with a big juicy rare steak. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet on 50% new French oak barrels. Cellar 8 to 12 years.
