ITEM 8019902 - Removed from a temperature controlled wine cellar; Purchased direct from winery
...gorgeous bouquet of blueberries, violets, graphite, dark chocolate, and scorched earth...hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a beautiful sense of balance, no hard edges, and a great finish.
Juicy and richly interwoven with a fresh underlay of acidity...powerhouse blend is substantially etched in cassis, plum and red currant. The oak and tannin are equally substantial and present, contributing weight, breadth and length.
...spins off the palate with blackberries, meat, tobacco and currants. Medium-to full-bodied, refined and so drinkable with brightness and energy.
...hefty, full-bore version, with intense raspberry and boysenberry reduction notes, infused liberally with licorice snap and warm fruitcake flavors, ending with a swath of fruit and additional spice and toast accents.
...creamy and expansive in feel... Blackberry jam, chocolate, leather, licorice, spice and espresso all flesh out in the glass...pleasant mid-palate sweetness.
Big, juicy and dense brooding nose – this just oozes power. Same on the palate, that deep dark-berry fruit is sleek and ripe and underpinned by a mineral edge...quite fun and enjoyable.
