...rockingly good bouquet of cured meats, dried, loamy earth, graphite, and blackcurrant characteristics, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a seamless texture, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish.
The nose has herbal accents with sappy, whole-bunch aromas and a wealth of blackcurrants, ripe dark plums and cardamom. There’s a very granular texture to the mid-palate tannin, which folds into a smooth and even finish with coffee and dark-cherry flavors to close it out.
Full-bodied on the palate, with flavors of blackberry, black cherry and savory herbs, the wine is rich and chock-full of weighty mineral tones with spiced meat and sticky plum jus. The wine ends with a bold and impressive core that balances juicy tones with energetic tannins and acidity.
Aromas of dark berries and black olive, plus a hint of licorice. Plush and horizontal...with flavors of plum, olive and spices nicely framed by sound acidity... Finishes with dusty tannins and good length.
