Blackberries, mushrooms and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied with a very compact palate that shows creamy and refined tannins that are strong and driven. Some tar and wet earth at the end.
...structured and full of a ripe black currant flavor. It is spicy and offers fine tannins...
Juicy and forward, with expressive cassis, plum reduction and blackberry paste flavors layered together and set against a backdrop of black tea, bay and alder. Long, subtle mineral note leaves a mouthwatering feel at the very end. Lovely.
...opens with quietly spoken notions of baked blackberries, blackcurrant cordial and bay leaves with hints of scorched earth, tar and tobacco. The full-bodied palate is restrained and elegantly played with subtle earth layers among the black fruit and a solid foundation of ripe, grainy tannins, finishing with earth and mineral nuances.
...aromas of raspberry and wild strawberry and veins of blue fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and better weight and body...there is plenty of freshness on the pliant finish.
Sweet vanilla and baked plums on the nose, but retaining some floral typicality. Silky smooth palate with very refined and ripe tannins. The fruit shines through and is ripe without any excess. Some bright acidity cuts through the smokier toasted notes on the palate. Succulent to the finish.
