... The nose is silky and elegant, with a focus on quality and precision that is instantly recognizable, with hints of black truffle, orange peel and a soft smokiness to the expression. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine's mineral tension evolves into a petrichor note... The palate continues to grow with red and dark fruits...has an extraordinary length and texture...and the aftertaste lingers for days.
This has ethereal purity and depth with very fragrant, floral and red-fruited notes on the palate. Some berry pastry and a meaty, fluid edge, too. The palate has a super fine texture with a wealth of rich red fruit. Lacy and elegant. Hauntingly long finish.
... Blackberries, smoked earth, cured meats, violets, and orange rind notes all flow to a beautiful, seamless, thrillingly refined effort that reminds me of a top traditional Côte Rôtie.
Complex aromas with heaping amounts of black pepper, potpourri, earth, funk, nori, black olive brine, peat and wet stone are followed by an elegant, yet rich, flavorful palate. It shows a compelling sense of deftness along with a hyperextended finish, filled with savory and floral notes. There is a mouthwatering sense to it that heightens the appeal. A knee buckler.
Complex, highly nuanced nose offers scents of red raspberry, smoked meat, olive tapenade and red licorice; I would have guessed northern Rhône. Boasts terrific sweetness of fruit (red cherry, raspberry, boysenberry) complicated by notes of charcuterie and rose petal. Wonderfully silky, slightly high-toned Syrah with an almost Pinot-like texture, showing a near-perfect harmony between primary red fruit and savory smoked meat elements...
Bold, yet refined and expressive, with vivid raspberry, smoky meat and rusty iron aromas that open to a full-bodied structure, accented by stony mineral notes.
