Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Beychevelle explodes from the glass with bombastic scents of creme de cassis, blueberry preserves and baked plums with touches of menthol, cinnamon toast and smoked meats plus a waft of dark chocolate. The medium-bodied palate injects fantastic energy into the decadent black and blue fruit flavors, framed by exquisitely ripe, finely-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing with great length and freshness.

Rich, layered red with lots of ripe fruit and creamy, round tannins. Yet, it’sfresh and refined at the same time. Flavorful finish. Ripe and solid. Equal to the 2018 in quality.
