...nose of black plums, black cherries and mulberries with nuances of underbrush, fruit cake and damp soil. The full-bodied palate has satisfying richness, with firm, rounded tannins supporting the earthy fruit layers, finishing with good depth and persistence.
Displays expansive aromas of dark fruit liqueur, incense, violet and spicecake, along with hints of cola and cracked pepper... Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering concentrated black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors... Supple and appealingly sweet on an impressively long, floral-driven finish...well-knit tannins.
Plenty of baking spices and pepper for early appeal. Fruits are in the ripe blackberry, blueberry and dark raspberry zone...palate rolls out riper than expected, a very round, rich and enveloping feel to this. Flavor of black tea and plum, tannins really drive ripe and deep.
...a deep, dark well of cherry chocolate cake, cola, raspberry, and spice. Juicy plush fruit on the palate is balanced by powerful yet silky tannins and a savory finish...full-bodied...
Savory and dark, with hints of hoisin sauce and mineral to the firm and juicy core of cherry and blackberry flavors. Tobacco and toasted herb notes linger on the finish, with dense tannins.
Refined, really complex nose. Super-ripe purple fruit and lovely polish. So clean and fresh on the end. Suave and velvety. Complete. Lightly salty and beautifully smooth yet with masses of tannins underneath.
