Unadorned and pure, this bottling highlights ripe black cherry and cassis flavors. It's juicy and concentrated, edged by piquant hits of black pepper and anise along with fine-grained, persistent tannins.
Savory notes of clove and leather add nuance to the rich fruit...full-bodied, creamy, lush, plump with red berries and stone fruit and remains fresh and fruit-driven through the long finish.
...notions of ripe strawberries, kirsch, garrigue, and spice. It has everything in the right places, a layered, elegant profile, moderate tannins, and impeccable balance.
A silky, elegant style, with pretty raspberry and damson plum coulis notes gliding through, supported by soft red licorice and rooibos tea accents. The fruit gains depth through the anise-tinged finish.
Expressive raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied flowers and white pepper. Silky, sweet and lively on the palate, offering juicy red fruit and floral pastille flavors and a subtle touch of bitter chocolate. Shows very good clarity and finishing lift, sneaky tannins and suave, floral-driven persistence.
Brambly, wild, red berries with mountain herbs and an attractive, perfumed lift. There’s a juicy, fresh and punchy core to the palate with ripe raspberries and boysenberries. Succulent, mellow finish.
Strangely confected oak scent here, which obscures the primary fruit. Very fine tannin, sweetly spiced finish.
