ITEM 8576567 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased upon release; Consignor is original owner
Intense aromas of roses and dark fruits. Hints of black truffles. Full body, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Hints of new wood, but intermingles well with ripe fruit. Structured and rich.
...sophisticated...sweet spice and red rose aromas on the bouquet. Beyond those are steady, savory pulses of tobacco, leather and dark cedar. The wine is plush, textured and rich, with a polished firmness that keeps it grounded on the palate.
Mellow aromas of raspberry, dried flowers and smoky oak. Silky and seamless in the mouth but not overly sweet, with harmonious acidity giving shape and grip to the deep flavors of red berries and smoky underbrush...finishing with very firm, slightly clenched tannins and sneaky persistence.
...black cherries, licorice, smoke, new leather and spices, all supported by firm, powerful tannins...has plenty of focus and length...
At first vanilla and bacon, before it slowly opens up...palate weight is very elegant. Sweet, creamy finish.
