Blackberry, black truffle, red tile and walnut on the nose. Full-bodied with a very dense, polished palate of ripe, firm tannins and beautifully pure fruit. Transparent and gorgeous.
This is another rich, powerful wine...a thrilling bouquet of crème de cassis, crushed rock-like minerality, graphite, and liquid violets. Deep, full-bodied, and concentrated, it nevertheless stays elegant and graceful, and just glides over the palate with nothing out of place. Count me in as a fan of this rich, sexy wine that also shows terrific balance and a sense of grace.
This is a generous, ripe wine, with rich, supple tannins. Its acidity and fine fruitiness are already giving great structure.
...opening out to notions of stewed plums, warm cassis, blackberry coulis and fruitcake with hints of grilled meats and fried herbs. Big, rich, full and laden with massive black fruit preserves layers, it has a plush texture and spicy finish.
...a pure and opulent bouquet with luscious dark cherry, blueberry and iodine aromas that seems well integrated with the new oak. Modern in style, but nicely executed. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins. There is good body here, velvety smooth with a deep and caressing blueberry and cassis-tinged finish that is irresistible.
