A complex red with rose petals, violets, crushed stones and cherries follows through to a full body and chewy tannins that are poised and polished. Extremely long and intense. A top wine for the vintage.
This is opulent and powerful, offering black cherry, black currant, plum, leather, iron and tobacco flavors boosted by the racy acidity. Overall, this feels firm and complex, with a long finish. Not your typical style
Toasty oak and vanilla complicate red cherry and underbrush aromas and flavors. Then rich, dense and concentrated, but lovely violet lift provides clarity and cut to the suave flavors of red cherry, red currant, flint and vanilla.
Dark and thickly extracted expression...this wine is almost too much of a good thing. It moves with slow-motion laziness.. dried blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, spice, campfire ash and sticky tar. a romantic wine in heart and soul.
