Graphite, cherries and chocolate here with a well-built palate that adds cocoa powder and blood plums to the mix. Terrific resolve and depth. Full of lively fruit.
...aromatics of milk chocolate, black cherry preserves and suggestions of wild blackberry pie. This is lithe while maintaining wonderful mid-palate weight and mouthfeel. There are ripe flavors of milk chocolate, black cherry preserves and suggestions of roasted dates.
...complex, nuanced bouquet of ripe black fruits, charcoal, smoke tobacco and licorice. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, supple, pure and polished red that's impeccably balanced and shines for its drinkability...a beautiful wine.
Dark fruit aromas are complicated by licorice, violet, bitter chocolate, tobacco and black tea nuances... Juicy, fresh and tight-grained, conveying a silky mouth feel but a lively high pitch to its dark berry, spice and floral flavors. A hint of smoked meat adds complexity. This nicely delineated, firmly structured wine finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins that spread out horizontally on the lingering, perfumed finish.
Refined and polished, this red has good structure, showing notes of red and dark berry, with accents of tobacco and spice that build toward integrated tannins.
...notes of spice, plum, herb and cherry. The palate is considerably more giving, showing a pleasing sense of balance and length.
