I find the color mesmerizingly dark; reminiscent of how Hitchcock used shadows in his films to draw you into the story line. The aromas of this wine are as deep as a baritone, but capable of the higher notes of a soprano as well. Blackberries, Australian licorice and white flowers fill the glass and entice you to savor the “liqueur du raisin” as one of my French interns would say. Lush and soft but structured with sweet minerally tannins that keep this concentrated blackberry and savory wine in balance. Dark and brooding, but never heavy. This wine is meant to drink now or in 40 years.
