ITEM 7967106 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine storage unit; Purchased at retail
Love the depth of fruit and intensity...dark fruit and floral undertones, as well as meat, which is very captivating. Full body, purity of fruit and nice, powerful tannins. Chewy and powerful.
...bouquet of plums, cassis, subtle spices and incipient hints of forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with tangy acids, fine but firm structuring tannins and a long, expansive finish.
...dense, chunky style, packed with cherry, strawberry, currant, earth and tobacco flavors, all backed by beefy tannins. All the elements are in the right proportions...
...blackberry and raspberry fruit, hints of mulch-like undergrowth and wilted violets...palate is medium-bodied with crunchy red fruit, a fine bead of acidity, quite precise and classy towards the finish that shows impressive integration of oak and substance.
Lots of violet perfume on the nose, fine tannic grain on the palate, light intensity, short finish. Easy-going and smoothly balanced but finishes with tart bitterness.
