...vivid, rich and super-expressive. Beams of salinity give the 2017 its energy and shape... Lavender, mint, blue fruits and blood orange all build into the beautifully layered, exquisite finish.
...dark, smoky wine... The smokiness goes with the impressive core of dry tannins and concentrated structure that supports the rich blackberry flavors.
...rocking perfume of ripe black raspberries, cassis, crushed stone, chocolate, and flowery incense. Powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated on the palate, it's beautifully done, has ripe, present tannins, and a great finish.
Very pure, with clearly defined plum, blackberry and black cherry preserve flavors gliding through, gently infused with anise and black tea details along the way. The fruit is so seductive you might miss the sneaky, graphite-edged grip that builds through the finish...
The nose has fresh blue fruit and hints of graphite and slate. The palate is succulent and juicy, right through to the very long finish.
...profoundly scented of baked blackberries, plum preserves, mulberries and kirsch with hints of cedar chest, iron ore and tapenade plus a waft of smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with earthy/savory nuances, supported by finely grained tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and earthy.
...dark and charry. Rocky and really dark. Firm and pretty chewy on the palate. Tannins are smooth and dense...
