Perfumed aromas of red cherry, kirsch, mocha and herbs on the inviting nose. Despite its size, this is graceful and impeccably built, with very precise flavors of red plum, blueberry, milk chocolate and minerals that expand and broaden on the long, seductive finish.
This is round, evoking plum and blackberry flavors, with vibrant acidity lending focus. Iron and tobacco elements join in as the finish builds, revealing dense, lively tannins.
Walnut, bark and some cedar to the ripe-plum and cherry character. It’s medium-bodied with tight, linear tannins and fresh acidity.
...this captures the intense ripeness of the vintage with sweet cherry fruit, chocolatey tannins and a creamy texture. Yet there is a refreshing juiciness and lift of woodland herbs underneath. A curvaceous, exuberant, jolly wine with lots of purity.
...brings on good intensity and fruit definition with wild cherry, cassis and grilled herb, and you feel this especially in the mouth. The nose, however, shows less clarity, with fruit tones that are followed by charred red meat and potting soil.
