Tasting NotesThe 2009 Laureate is dark garnet in color, deep and ripe. The nose shows full blackberry, raspberry, dark plum, and black pepper. Complex and textured, the mouth presents itself loaded with black cherries and chocolate, with hints of olive and black pepper. The finish is long and lingering with balanced tannin and structure.
This vintage of Laureate is ready to drink immediately (and will age gracefully for 10-15 years).
