"The 2011 Eleanor delivers rich, decadent flavors that are textural, aromatic and enduring. Aged for 2 years in barrel, the wine's tannins are integrated but still deliver a solid grip that's offset by a velvety palate and very pure fruit expressions. Enjoy a fragrant nose of cherries, blackberries, cloves and cedar followed by succulent flavors of raspberries and cassis. Spice and earth notes are prevalent with impressions of leather, minerals, pepper, and graphite underscoring a trace of floral. For immediate enjoyment decant several hours before serving, or cellar 3-5 years to experience this wine at its fullest." —winemaker
