Saturated ruby. Wild aromas of blackberry, black cherry, pepper, truffle and minerals. Wonderfully dense and concentrated, with compelling black fruit and spice flavors that show a refined quality at the back. Finishes supple, with outstanding length and brightness. A very strong vintage for this merlot, from a hot year that might have led one to expect grittier tannins. Very well done.
