...huge bouquet of blackcurrants, black cherries, smoked earth, chocolate, and cedary spice, this flamboyant, powerful beauty hits the palate with loads of fruit, has sweet tannins, no hard edges, building tannins, and a huge finish.
Violet lift to the aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, subtle peppery herbs and minerals... Finishes with big tongue- and tooth-saturating tannins that are a bit more suave than those of the Cabernet.
Bold, yet polished and complex, with expressive red currant, toasted cinnamon and tarragon notes that build richness toward broad-shouldered tannins.
...nose wafts with elegant red and black fruit that is ripe and seductive. Black raspberries and chocolate-covered berries spin out of the glass with soft herbal tones and supporting oak essence. Medium to full-bodied on the palate... The wine lingers long on the finish with a steady expression and focused aftertaste.
