Excellent structure, depth and richness, deftly balanced, with a firm core of well-defined earthy currant, sage, plum and pencil lead flavors and finishing with a burst of concentrated flavors and ripe, fine-grained tannins.
...lots of incense, black currant, sweet cherry, plum sauce and loamy soil notes along with a hint of smoky oak. The sweet, broad, expansive mouthfeel, full-bodied texture, impressive purity and long finish...
Well made and classic, a wine that combines potency of fruit and firm tannins with a graceful harmony that makes it easy to drink tonight. Oak adds smoky vanillins as an additional theme.
