Deep, dark and mysterious, rich and velvety... Wonderful minerality, married to caressing texture on the palate.
Dense, firmly structured and powerful, providing a backdrop for the plum, black cherry, earth and spice flavors. Monolithic today, with a wall of energetic tannins on the long finish.
...charming bouquet of ebullient raspberry and wild strawberry aromas; hints of vanilla pod and rose petal lend complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, gentle grip and a saline, oyster-shell-tinged finish that lingers in the mouth.
An exuberantly spicy and attractively fresh nose offers up notes of red currant, essence of plum and ample floral influences, all of which is surrounded by much more subtle wood influence. The refined and pure middle weight flavors possess excellent delineation and verve while delivering very fine complexity and persistence...
Beautifully fine tannins, elegant structure, with the fruit to balance...great length.
