Tasting Notes: The palate expresses beautiful aromas of blackberry contrasted perfectly with spiced notes of nutmeg. There is a lucious weight and texture to the wine, but also a racy edge of well-balanced acidity. A powerful, yet elegant wine with wonderful aging potential. A true expression of the Heitz winemaking phlisophy.
