Layered combination of violets, rose petals, sandalwood, anise, clove, plum and dark currant scents.. big and overtly muscular wine with broad-shouldered and admirably concentrated flavors
This is a big and overtly muscular wine with broad-shouldered and admirably concentrated flavors yet for all of the impressive size, weight and volume, the massively long finish is serene, even Zen-like.
Dense bouquet with wild strawberry and blueberry scents, more opulence coming through with time, red rose. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a subtle marine influence flowing under the surface of red cherry and wild strawberry
Aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate, with leather and herb nuances. Rich, tactile and deep, offering outstanding concentration and chewiness to its dark fruit and saline flavors.
Majestic rather than refreshing. Many blackberry layers under the majestic overlay. Real depth & tension. Lots of density. But refined on the end. Dry finish. Many a muscle. This is humming along. Lots of mineral limestone lift on the end.
