One of the true blockbusters in the vintage...incredible perfume of black cherries, blackcurrants, spring flowers, violets and damp earth. With a huge, full-bodied profile, an opulent, seductive texture, big tannin, and perfect balance, it’s a true superstar...
...a wine of dark, brooding intensity. Vertical in its construction...exudes power and structure... Black cherry, plum, graphite, smoke, heavy toast and lavender add myriad shades of nuance.
...perfumed and floral bouquet, wilted violets filtering through the dark cherry and cassis fruit, gaining more complexity as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin that are cloaked in layers of lightly toasted dark berry fruit... This is absolutely delicious.
A very plush and fluid wine… Dark plums, smooth baking spices and a gently tarry edge lead to a palate that offers succulent, fine tannins that exude smooth, velvety charm through the finish.
Very rich, almost brûlée, on the nose. Thick and creamy in texture. Lots of reward. Quite forward.
