Tobacco, ash and dark fruit. Some grilled meat, too. Full-bodied with a spice, white-pepper and hunan finish.
...killer minerality in its black cherry and currant fruits as well as notes of beef blood, violets, spiced meats, and spring flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful elegance and purity, fine tannins, and a great finish.
Beginning with a dusty rigidity on the nose...firm core of black fruits, blackberry, dark plum and dark cherry skin with hints of black pepper and dried purple flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is still firm with grippy tannins that will loosen with age, and it ends with a tannic grip and elements of worn leather and bitter black tea. Stellar!
