The white truffle and dark berry character comes through here. Rosemary too. Full body, chewy and extremely long. It shows fantastic length and structure. Noble tannins.
Very consistent with the style...powerful personality, with darker fruit and some earthy sensations, very Mediterranean, with plenty of rosemary aromas...nicely polished and fine-grained...
Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola, exotic spices and potpourri pick up a smoky mineral overtone as the wine stretches out. Palate-staining red berry liqueur, mocha, rose pastille and spicecake flavors show outstanding delineation... Finishes on a suave floral note, displaying superb clarity, lingering floral and mineral qualities and silky, even tannins that sneak in late.
Alluring aromas of tree bark, licorice root, rose petal and ripe black fruit show elegance... Deep flavors of plum, cherry, wild berry and vanilla finish finessed by a balance of weight and acidity.
Lively flavors of red cherry, leaf, black olive and smoke weave through this bright red, whose light, firm tannins provide backbone, while assertive balsamic acidity imparts energy.
...rocky and mineral with a slight dusty note over the fruit....sweet-fruited on the nose. Incredibly fine tannins, beautifully dry and succulent.
