...bouquet of ripe blackberries and cherries and a classy framing of new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, lavish and expansive, its polished, velvety tannins concealed in a ripe core of fruit, only asserting themselves on the finish.
Black cherries, blueberries, iodine, liquid violets, and hints of leafy herbs all emerge from the glass. Full-bodied, incredibly sexy, pure, and silky on the palate, it's another blockbuster wine from the team of Mike Macmorran and Mark McNeilly.
Sleek and expressive, with black cherry and violet aromas and layered plum and smoky licorice flavors that take on momentum toward polished tannins.
...aromas of currant, chocolate, mocha and graphite. Suave, pliant and fine-grained but also classically dry and serious, showing as much red- as blackcurrant fruit. In a fairly forward style, conveying lovely finesse and finishes with smooth tannins.
...aromas are exuberant, with notes of blackberry, bittersweet chocolate and toast along with dried herb and luxurious barrel accents. The black-fruit flavors coat the palate, showing depth and intensity along with a firm tannic spine.
