2013 Left Bank Bordeaux "Incandescence"
Rich savory and herbal notes of black olive and smoked meat mingle with aromas of dark cherry and stone. Dark fruit flavors of fresh blackberry and cherry elegantly balance over a structure of fine tannins and nuanced oak characters of mocha, toast, and spice. This wine will age beautifully, showing a balanced tension between dark fruit, fine tannins, and supporting oak. Notes of dark dried fruit, espresso, and briny olive persist into a lengthy finish.
