...full of spicy cherry, smoke, tobacco and mineral aromas and flavors. Shows terrific intensity and balance... Very sleek and energetic, presenting a long aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral elements.
...beautiful, ripe and floral wine... Berries and red plums push through the rounded tannins...great richness.
A highly reserved, cool and super-fresh nose only reluctantly gives up the essence of red cherry, pomegranate, wet stone and soft earth aromas.
...aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and minerals. Suave and wonderfully precise on the palate, conveying lovely inner-mouth rose petal lift to the flavors of raspberry and crushed-stone minerality...very long, rising, saline finish perks up the taste buds.
Lively red cherry fruit on the nose carried over to the palate... Firm but juicy, very supple, just enough fruit for the tannins...little drying on the finish.
