...shows Mission Haut-Brion-like characteristics... ...crushed rock, wet gravel, scorched earth, blackberry and blueberry fruit. It is clearly one of my favorites of this entire tasting... ...a killer effort.
A profound nose of crushed blueberries, blackberries and minerals. Licorice, too. Full body, superfine tannins and a long, long finish. Linear and racy. Wonderful balance and structure.
Sleek and understated, with a mix of loamy earth, licorice, dark berry, cedar and gravelly, rocky soil flavors, ending with fruit and earth themes, oak and dry tannins.
