This Grand Durif features a deep, majestic purple, with a nose of blueberries, wet earth and saddle leather. The initial impression on the palate is broad, smooth and weighty, then springs into gear with harmonious tannins. The key notes of this wine are the lush textural tannins that push the limits on arrogance yet also display friendly supple qualities. It's truly difficult to explain its singular style-firm structure yet super-abundant fine textural softness. The oak that it's aged in plays a significant role in providing a vanilla character. This wine can be enjoyed now, or aged even longer with huge age potential.
