The southern exposure brings aromas of black fruits to this 1st vintage which is powerful while remaining round and fleshy. It is a broad wine in the mouth, beautiful texture that only needs to evolve slowly. This wine supports a decanter to make it more silky. The wine was put into barrels (30% new barrels) for 12 months, then it was racked. The bottling takes place in the Spring, after 2 winters in the cellar. To consume in the 7/8 years.
