ITEM 8242481 - Removed from a subterranean, temperature and humidity controlled residential cellar; Purchased at auction
Beautiful combination here of balanced orange and lemon rind and riper glazed cherries, terracotta and scorched earth. Mushroom too...elegant with a persistent core of mineral acidity and finely wrapped-up tannins.
...very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond... There is a pretty note of crushed stone or granite on the close.
Spicy cherry, raspberry and plum flavors are shaded by tobacco and earth notes in this savory red. Elegant and solidly built, with refined tannins upholding the lingering finish. Shows good sweetness courtesy of the ripe fruit.
Brooding aromas of cassis, menthol, chocolate and minerals. Dense and juicy...with a floral nuance and nicely integrated acidity lending precision to the red fruit and violet flavors...long mouthcoating finish.
Hints of gingerbread hovering over a brooding fruit nose. Quite pure tangy cherry fruit on the palate paired with long, chewy tannins.
