...bouquet redolent of smoke and licorice, tobacco and vanilla. Though it's Syrah that seems dominant, adding flavors of supple purple fruits to the aromatic mix, it seems apparent that the Pinot Noir component extends the finish, turning a potent and powerful wine into one that exits with delicacy and breeding.
Sexy oak-spiced black and blue fruits incense vanilla and candied flowers on the assertively perfumed nose. Supple sweet and penetrating offering pliant blackberry cherry-vanilla and violet pastille flavors that pick up a smoky nuance with air. Shows impressive depth as well as energy and finishes very long and smooth with sneaky tannins shaping the sappy fruit.
A chewy yet soft and polished red with tar and dark berries. Sliced mushrooms, too. Full, beautiful, very long and flavorful.
