...a deeper, richer wine that offers layers of black cherry and black raspberry fruit, licorice, smoked meats and hints of olive. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and with building tannin...has enough texture and depth ...
Solidly built, with a core of crushed plum and boysenberry fruit melding with roasted alder and dried anise notes. The finish has a tarry hint but this stays fleshy in feel overall, letting the dark fruit drip through.
A sexy, expansive bouquet displays aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, candied violet and incense, with a zesty, peppery note building in the glass. Lively and precise on the palate, with intense blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors becoming sweeter with air. Energetic and pure on the clinging finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins.
