...stunning...pure lavender and violets, in addition to riper dark cherries, tea leaves, olives, eucalyptus and spice box. Very structured and muscular on the palate, which encompasses layers of dark fruit and plenty of driving acidity to take this through to a long, chewy finish.
...terrific wine that unfolds to reveal pretty fruit intensity, deep layers of cherry and blackberry and a soft texture...elegant and fresh with steady fruit weight that drives the quality and length of the finish.
The flavors of cherry, strawberry, flowers, fresh herbs and iron are more forthcoming than the aromas in this version, while the structure is firm and unyielding. Nonetheless, there is a sense of ripeness from the sweet fruit and lingering aftertaste.
...attractive, expressive wine. Sweet red cherry and red plum fruit give the 2016 a nicely sense of immediacy. Pliant and open-knit, with mid-weight structure...impeccably balanced from start to finish.
