...beautifully balanced....offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas.
Enticing aromas of violet, woodland berry, loose vineyard soil, wild mint and a hint of spearmint shape the intensely fragrant nose...boasts finesse, showing wild raspberry, crunchy red cherry, white pepper and star anise. Firm, refined tannins and racy acidity...bright acidity keeps it focused and balanced.
...stunning wine with tremendous richness... Ample, deep and powerful...exudes pedigree and class from start to finish... A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine!
Cherry, tar and menthol flavors mark this rich, silky red. Even more expansive on the palate, building to a long, complex aftertaste. Beautifully balanced, this picks up a minerally accent on the finish.
Iron, oats and lifted sweet, rich fruit. Bags of ripe cherry on the palate but nothing out of kilter or overdone. Tannic layer under generous sweet-sour cherry fruit. Embryonic and with plenty of stuffing.
