When wine leaves the darkness of the cellar, it is revealed on the table with a name and an unusual appearance. It does not care about prominence and glory, it represents enough even without those things. It is offered the same as it has evolved in spirit and taste: joyous, vivacious, serious at moments, but a little liberating throughout. True prominence is never superior.
Lifted blackberry and cherry aromas meld into flavors of ripe black-fruit, violet and black pepper on this bold, beautiful Bordeaux-style blend. It's richly concentrated, with vibrant acidity and lush, furry tannins. Generously spiced on the finish.?ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
