Smooth and luscious, with polished plum, black cherry and espresso details that slowly give way to deeper flavors of mahogany, clove and black tea. Shows a juicy edge to the fruit, but also plenty of base notes from dense and polished tannins.
...blackcurrants and a tarry edge with dried plums, some raisins, mint and sweetly fragrant oak spices...palate is very smooth and juicy. The fully ripe tannins are super fluid and open-knit, delivering a silky and approachable style.
Slightly herbal and leafy on the nose...deep, currant-scented...medium to full-bodied, with soft, measured tannins and true Cabernet identity...some cedar and mocha notes apparent on the nose and finish, but the cassis fruit carries the day.
...ripe raspberries and currants along with dark chocolate and dried mint. The palate is silky-textured and oozes with ripe, almost jammy, fruit and savory, grainy tannins.
Very fresh and really quite refined. Rich blackberry compote with a little mineral top note. Very pleasing.
