...notes of black cherries and licorice mark the nose, while the full-bodied palate is ripe and welcoming without going over the top...tannins are supple and silky. Dense and concentrated, this is serious stuff, with awesome length on the slightly chocolaty, spice-inflected finish.
Ripe, smoke-tinged red/blue fruits, potpourri, incense and exotic spices on the deeply perfumed nose. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet boysenberry, blackberry and floral pastille flavors sharpened by vibrant mineral and white pepper flourishes. Shows the richness of the vintage but comes off lively and delivers strong floral thrust on the extremely long finish, which is framed by smooth, well-knit tannins.
Blossomy in perfume and edged with silk, it's a scintillating expression of summer raspberries and strawberry preserves. A mineral crush and hints of fresh thyme and violet linger on the finish.
...gorgeous nose of kirsch liqueur, herbes de Provence, licorice, loamy soil, and assorted spices. With medium to full-bodied richness, a seamless texture, and a great finish...
Stylish and elegant, with perfumed sandalwood and tea notes leading the way for gentle-edged raspberry and plum coulis flavors. Ends with a subtle woodspice hint on the finish.
