A very complex wine on the nose with flowers, earth and spiced blue and red cherries on offer, as well as sappy notes. The palate has plenty of up-front fruit and such intense, deeply layered tannins that carry red-cherry flavors so long and so deep. Long and impressive.
Fresh acidity pierces through spicy tea and clove seasoned around a light, bright and exotic core of orange peel, rhubarb and brambly blackberry and cherry. The finish is lengthy and indelibly memorable.
…scented of mushroom, tree bark, white pepper and dried sage with a core of wild blackberries and Bing cherries plus nuances of gunflint, peppered meats and garrigue... Medium-bodied, it offers intense, savory-laced fruits with a gentle, grainy frame and fantastic freshness, finishing long and nuanced.
Broad-textured, with plenty of creamy notes to the ebullient flavors of cherry tart, roasted fig and plum, showing dried beef accents. The ripe, spicy finish offers dried sage and smoke details.
