2016 D2, the 25th vintage of this remarkable cuvee, leaps from the glass with an impressive and inviting abundance of fruit aromas, including pomegranate, fresh blueberry and currant. Restrained oak influence enrobes the fruit, adding essences of cocoa nibs and cherry cordial. Dense and vibrant on the palate, with a pure fruit core, this wine offers elegant tannin and remarkable integration. Incredibly balanced barrel influence and Cabernet presence supports an extended finish.

This 25th anniversary edition starts with a plush edge surrounding the sleek and well-structured frame, loaded with a mix of blackberry, dark plum and red currant flavors punctuated with an expressive streak of graphite. Finishes with fine grain tannins and warm spice notes of bay leaf, fennel and sage.
