...generous on the nose, showcasing a dense, chewy core of fruit, exuding bold yet elegant expressions of blackberries, blackcurrant, red cherry and dark, dusty plum. Medium to full-bodied, the palate sings with subtle baking spices—cinnamon and cardamom—and vanilla tones with a complexity that lifts the mid-palate...ending with a long, drawn-out finish...
…a great nose of ripe blackberry and cassis fruits intermixed with lots of cedary spice, orange blossom, and floral notes, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, silky tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish.
Crushed blackberry, cassis and minerals on the nose, plus a pungent note of black pepper. Seamless and bright on entry, then utterly smooth in the energetic middle palate, with flavors of black fruits, fruity peppercorn, licorice and graphite....finishes with serious but utterly suave tannins and slowly mounting floral persistence.
…aromas of dark coffee bean, milk chocolate, dried and fresh herbs, barrel spice and dark cherry are followed by initially light, well-balanced fruit flavors that ramp up in depth and intensity over time.
Classy nose, some developing leafy notes and a rich, ripe cassis and cigar-box nose. A ripe and smooth palate with blue fruit, cassis and quite firm and fine tannins.
