A smoky and juicy red with blackberries, tar and wet earth. Medium to full body and round, firm tannins. Savory and earthy finish.
Expressive aromas of ripe red fruits and candied flowers, along with allspice, vanilla and pipe tobacco topnotes. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and mocha flavors and a spicy nuance that emerges as the wine opens up. Finishes sappy, penetrating and quite long, with smooth, slow-building tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's sappy fruit.
...textbook currants, smoked earth, leather, espresso, and graphite aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, ripe, voluptuous and sexy on the palate, with sweet tannin, it's a charming, forward vintage of this cuvée that dishes out loads of pleasure.
