Tasting Notes

Our last vintage was sold out in record time. The 2008 continues the precedent of a full-bodied and generous wine displaying characteristic scents of white pepper and violets on the nose with dark fruit and a full array of spices on the palate presented in a smooth and elegant style. Excellent aging potential and one to stock up on.
