...graced with a similar interlude of elegant rose or crushed flower...more prominently here, and with more shape and focused intensity.
Lots of red plums and cherries on the nose with a palate that has a full body, thick silky tannins and a fresh and flavorful finish. The tannins are in good balance against the ripe fruit. Fresh and transparent at the end.
Expressive, complex and long, despite its compact profile today. Delivers black cherry, blackberry, violet, mineral and tobacco flavors that prevail, while assertive yet refined tannins leave their mark on the lingering finish.
...layered display of peppery herbs, musky plums, black raspberry, crushed stone, tobacco and smoke...silky yet juicy, pliant and staining to the senses, offering violet and lavender tones balanced by cooling acids and hints of candied citrus...really plays with the palate; it’s spicy, long and intense, and lightly structured yet classically dry...elegant pleasure bomb.
Cherry-liqueur nose with oatmeal hints and with plenty of depth. Sweet cherry fruit held together by bitter-sweet grainy tannins.
