...velvety and lush on the palate with strong bursts of blueberry, blackberry and cassis. Fresh acidity lies beneath earthy shocks of dried herb, clove, nutmeg and a grip of crushed rock, finishing as seamlessly as it starts, in a whirl of dark chocolate.
Inky red/purplish berry fruit, grilled herbs, black pepper and licorice...tannins are powerful, but all the elements are impeccably balanced...potent and also very elegant.
...bouquet of blueberries, cassis, sandalwood, tobacco, and scrub brush...rich and full-bodied, with ample tannic grip and loads of character.
...scents of fresh herbs, mint chocolate, cedar, pencil shavings, blackcurrant and baked black cherries plus warm red cherry preserves, crushed stone and leather hints. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a good interplay of spice/herbs with ripe black fruits in the mouth, framed by very ripe, finely pixelated tannins and great freshness to lift the long, concentrated, layered finish.
Breezy cherry, damson plum and pomegranate notes form the fruit profile, with bouncy floral and spice accents. Shows an evenhanded approach to the toast, allowing the finish to sail through.
