Perfect aromas of crushed berries, cedar, roses and blackberries. Touch of rose leaf. Medium body, very fine tannins and nuanced flavors. Lovely, complex finish. Wonderful elegance and length.
...scents of blackberry pie, baked black cherries and warm cassis with hints of raspberry leaves, tilled black loam, truffles and tar. The full-bodied palate is satisfyingly rich and plush, yet it has a fantastic backbone of freshness lifting all the opulent fruit to a long, lively, mineral-tinged finish.
...gorgeous notes of blackcurrants, tobacco, crushed rock-like minerality, lead pencil, and forest floor...pencil character, medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful balance, and a great finish.
Gracious, perfumed and medium in body... Rose petal, spice and mint aromatics play off a core of sweet red berry fruit...truly impressive...
Well-built, this broad-shouldered wine features a core of currant and blackberry paste flavors, while notes of apple wood and tar wrap the finish.
