The 2017 Estate Cuvee showcases a vibrant nose redolent with blackberry, violet, cocoa, wintergreen and worn leather. The palate is concentrated yet elegant, with layers of pomegranate, rolling tobacco, graphite, and a hint of vanilla. This is pure class all the way through with its silky, seamless, and incredibly long finish. This beauty is capable of laying down for several decades, but why wait?
