There is stunning definition and poise here. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin. There is a core of wonderful Cabernet Franc here, the acidity extremely well judged with a precise, sustained finish.
...blackberry, raspberry and boysenberry pâte de fruit notes, liberally laced with smoldering charcoal and tobacco accents. The long, loamy edge drives the finish, along with hints of bay and warm stones, while the fruit pours through.
A red with dried strawberries, chocolate and hints of dried tomatoes. Full body, dense palate and a velvety tannin texture. Surprisingly rich and ripe for the vintage.
Intense scents of ripe blackberry, blueberry, violet, and aromatic herbs on the knockout nose. Large-scaled, fat and dense, with harmonious acids providing lift and clarity to the red and black fruit flavors. Finishes very long and smooth
Tasted blind. Wonderfully polished dark crimson. Sweet succulent start and lots of gorgeousness. Sinewy, juicy, full of life. Transparent rather than concentrated. Lovely balance.
