41% Petit Verdot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah
Awakening from its jet-black, midnight core to an impressive glow of ruby hues on the outer rim, this wine’s mouthwatering herbs and brooding blackberry notes quickly evolve into a tremendous warmth and cozy feeling of toasted coconut, savory red fruit and deep melted chocolate. It’s hard to imagine anything this incredibly intense, full-bodied and rich, to possess such silky and sexy powdered tannins, leaving one’s palate invigorated and longing for the entire experience to start anew, like the darkness before the dawn.
