Aromas of blackberry, black raspberry and dusty cherry skin burst from the glass with black peppercorn and red spice notes. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, structured and lifted, with a touch of sweet red fruit, presumably from a semi-carbonic maceration, showing elegance and ease on the mid-palate that is firm and focused, with a mineral tension of wet rock.
...aromas are reserved, with notes of black pepper, dried stem, herb, lavender and smoked meat. The palate is packed full of tart fruit flavors that stretch out on the finish. Quite firm tannins back it up.
...black fruits, peppery herbs, and subtle minerality, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, firm tannins, good acidity, and a clean, lengthy finish.
Strong pepper and herb lift to the aromas of red cherry, red raspberry, licorice and spices...possesses lovely energy... Finishes fairly full, with ripe, well-distributed tannins.
