ITEM 8574568 - Removed from a subterranean wine cellar
Fragrant blackberries married to moderate vanilla oak on the nose. Then cue an elegant, moderately tannic palate with some real sophistication. What a seductive wine...long clean, dry and mineral finish...
This is a ripe, juicy wine, showing the improvements at this potentially fine estate. Dense tannins and succulent fruit come together to give a wine that is both structured and complex. The black-currant and berry flavors are underlined with a ripe structure.
...offers up cassis, black cherries and plums on the nose with touches of garrigue, lavender and Provence herbs. The medium-bodied palate offers great fruit concentration with savory accents and ripe, grainy tannins plus plenty of freshness, finishing earthy.
Brambly, juicy and energetic, with anise, plum cake and blackberry compote notes inlaid with brambly tannins. A light black tea streak adds nuance on the finish.
Sweet, perfumed. Dry finish but with good energy.
