This 1448 has a deep, dark color with mature hues. The aromas lead with blue and black fruits, most notably black raspberry. The bouquet features sweet vanilla and hazelnut scents. The flavors are big and dense, with plenty of deeply concentrated ripe fruit framed with smoky deeply toasted oak. The succulent fruits flavors flow into a smoky toasted oak background. Our house style is noted for mature tannins and this wine has plenty; enough that a bit of time in the bottle may reward the patient with some additional complexity.
