...huge nose of black raspberries, Provençal herbs, spice and saddle leather...open, sexy and opulent...
...full-bodied... Bursting with cassis, mocha and spice, it boasts a rich, creamy texture on the mid-palate, easing into a velvety finish backed by plentiful, powerful tannins.
Features lovely high-pitched streaks of lavender and white pepper throughout... A long, refined mineral edge drives the finish, adding energy and cut.
Intense black raspberry, cherry cola and violet aromas are complicated by suggestions of licorice, mocha and exotic Indian spices. Lively and incisive on the palate, offering sweet, mineral-laced red and dark berry and spicecake flavors... Blends power and finesse with a deft hand and finishes impressively long and spicy, with velvety tannins coming in late.
Rich and ripe with great energy...very ambitious. Bravo! Essence of tea leaves.
