Lots of crème de cassis, violets, spicy oak, damp earth, exotic spice notes give way to a seamless, medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has everything in the right place, the vintage's purity and freshness, building tannins, and outstanding length....concentrated yet elegant style...
...dark, brooding intensity... Inky dark fruit, cloves, licorice, lavender and menthol fill out the layers...gorgeous.
Extremely aromatic with currant, flower and citrus on the nose...full-bodied...chewy tannins that are polished and very pretty. Long finish.
...nose of tar, new leather and damp soil, but soon gives way to an expressive core of black currant pastilles, blackberry pie and stewed plums plus a hint of Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers bags of earth-laced black fruits with grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a peppery kick.
