The stunning bouquet is a brilliant blend of red and black cherries, black raspberries, exotic spice tones, raw cocoa, lovely meatiness, black minerality, a touch of fresh nutmeg and a very discreet base of cedary new wood...pure, full-bodied and almost racy in its tanginess, with a sappy core of black fruit, magnificent complexity, extremely refined tannins, laser-like focus and a very, very long, svelte and intensely flavored finish.
...medium-bodied with supple tannin...demonstrates impressive precision as it fans out with gusto towards the finish.
Very glamorous nose – rich and glossy and chock full of fruit. Very sweet and rich with massive power and corsetry and drive. Not at all marked by oak!
...aromas of dark raspberry, strawberry and blood orange. Then hugely rich, opulent and pliant on the palate...conveying a strong impression of solidity and saline minerality. Finishes with big but ripe, thoroughly integrated tannins.
