ITEM 8171626 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased direct from a distributor
Dark cherries, black plums, mulberries, granite, olives, graphite and lead pencil. Full-bodied with chewy and very structured, velvety tannins that melt together on the center palate. A very complete wine that maintains a great sense of poise and finesse, while packing a real punch of concentration. Very long on the finish.
...reveals crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and bay leaves with hints of incense, baking spices, Sichuan pepper and underbrush plus a touch of wood smoke. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, chewy structure and plenty of earthy layers, it finishes on a mineral note.
A flashy style, with creamy plum, boysenberry and cherry flavors, laced with melted red licorice and mulling spice notes. Features just enough spine to stay together on the finish.
Grippy and with a baked fruit quality, it tastes of plum, dried cherry and currant, with a soft rounded midpalate of leather, coffee and cedar. The finish continues to grip.
