...bold crème de cassis, blackberry pie and plum preserves scents, followed by touches of star anise, bouquet garni and tar with a waft of crushed rocks. Full-bodied and packed with juicy black fruits, the palate is beautifully framed by plush tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with loads of fragrant earth and exotic spice accents.
Dusty sage, earth and dried herb meet a layer of cocoa powder and coffee bean in this intensely concentrated, big-boned wine. Soft, rich and round, it delivers resolved tannin and lasting grip amidst an array of dark brooding cherry and blackberry.
Dark and winey, with a solidly built core of steeped black currant and fig compote flavors laced with tar and warm black licorice notes. Well-structured, with a typical Howell Mountain spine driving the finish, where echoes of tobacco and espresso crema linger amidst the fruit.
