Deep rose and violet notes are seamlessly joined to purple raspberries in a full-bodied wine that seems almost weightless on the palate. There's terrific inner-mouth perfume, near-ethereal tannins that support the wine's girth...finish tinged with star anise and black cherries...
...sensational bouquet of Provençal garrigue, ground pepper, spiced meat, and red and black fruits...full-bodied and has a beautifully layered, elegant texture, sweet tannins, and a gorgeous finish.
This is a beauty, with a seductive display of Turkish coffee, singed alder, steeped plum and warmed anise aromas and flavors that move in unison, backed by a subtle garrigue note through the finish.
...expansive bouquet evokes ripe, spice-tinged red/blue fruits, potpourri and incense, and a smoky mineral nuance builds in the glass. Shows impressive depth and energy to the sappy black raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors, which are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Impressively lithe for its heft, finishing on a gently tannic note, with fine delineation and floral lift.
...all red fruit and earth on the nose, with attractive herbal complexity too. Pumped-up palate with full body, high alcohol but ultra-smooth tannins that provide good internal structure without imposing themselves. Moderate length with a savoury liquorice finish.
