...a rich, ripe, sexy style...shows elegance and purity as well as complexity. Lots of black raspberry and mulberry fruit emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort, which has plenty of bouquet garni and spice-laced aromatics, ripe, soft tannins, and a great finish. It brings lots of fruit in a balanced, textured, incredibly satisfying package.
A woodsy aroma leads to well-spiced flavors of chocolate brioche and dark plum tart, ending with concentrated toastiness on the long, juicy finish.
Juicy, lush and posh in style...well-integrated in firm tannin and toasted oak, succulently rich and rewarding in red berry and cherry. Dried herb, forest and a thread of underlying acidity keep it interesting.
