More cured meats, spice, loamy soil notes, and an incredible core of kirsch and currant... Deep, incredibly concentrated, multi-dimensional and long...
...notes of crushed stone, pencil shavings, black olives, tar and licorice on the nose...rich, velvety texture and incredible length.
This is rock-solid, with a core of steeped fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit carried by licorice root, tar and singed mesquite notes. This shows strong lines on the finish, with the fruit playing out easily while the underlying grip extends.
...aromas of red and blue fruit preserves, candied flowers, incense and Indian spices show outstanding definition and mineral lift. Fleshy, alluringly sweet and expansive in the mouth... Smooth, spicy and penetrating on the impressively persistent finish, which is given shape by suave, slow-building, deftly interwoven tannins.
...lovely spicy notes through the finish, and great fruit purity.
