Inky saturated purple-colored, with sensational notes of blackberries, ground pepper, crushed rocks, and smoked earth, it hits the palate with a massive, full-bodied, layered, seamless style that has to be tasted to be believed.
...gregarious crushed blackcurrants and black plums with touches of dried herbs, black pepper, aniseed and tilled soil plus a waft of underbrush. Full-bodied with a firm backbone of grainy tannins and a lively line supporting the generous fruit, it has a very long, savory finish...
Broad-shouldered and potent, with a complex core supported by bold blackberry and currant flavors, accented by smoky beef, licorice, pepper and tar notes. Finishes with big but resolved tannins.
...aromatic top notes that plays off the dark, inky fruit beautifully. All the elements are wonderfully fused together in a deep, plush wine endowed with pedigree and class.
Peppery and thick in cured meat, game and smoked oak, this has violet undertones and a powerful grasp of brambly blackberry and blueberry.
