CMR 2016 is blessed with an enticing nose that plays on the palate. One detects a variety of floral fragrances that lingers among blueberries, dark cherries and cinnamon bark. Also present are notes of tobacco, vanilla and dark-green raisins. This blend has seductive tendencies one of which is working these flavors into well structured tannings. All in all, a beautifullly, well constructed vintage with unbelievable consistency and long legs.
