...aromas of moist soil, tobacco and smoke. Candied cherry hovers over the entire bouquet.... I am also very attracted to that almost dusty note of crushed mineral that rides long on the full-bodied finish.
So many sour cherries rise up from the glass, along with orange rind and lemon peel. The full-bodied palate has a very serious and concentrated core of florals and fruit, and the tannins have an iron-fisted, strapping build. Long, chewy and structured.
Wild herb and Mediterranean macchia notes mark this expressive red. Though well-endowed with tannins, this is on the sleek side, showing vibrant acidity. Cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors join the party as this cruises to a long finish.
Aromas of cinnamon, red cherry, plum, tobacco and herbs. Big and voluptuous on entry then youthfully chewy with Oriental spices, ripe red cherry and herbs. The finish is suave, long and multifaceted.
Aromas of mature plum, vanilla, French oak and camphor lift out of the glass. Full bodied and firmly structured, the palate features dried black cherry, prune, licorice and a hint of tobacco leaf set against a backbone of close-grained tannins.
Lots of concentrated, sweet fruit on the nose. Fantastic chewy tannins and energetic, juicy fruit deliver tactile fireworks on the palate.
