Sensational, opaque blue/purple-colored wine... a gorgeous floral nose with notes of graphite, blueberries, blackberries, and cassis ..very dense, yet strikingly pure... stunning concentration and multi-layered mouthfeel
An impressive nose of spices, dark fruits, and fresh forest flowers. Full-bodied, this has a solid core of fruit and super polished tannins. A fabulous wine, showing great structure and harmony, and a long, long finish.
Very grapey, with black licorice and mineral character. Full-bodied, with hints of new wood and spices. Big and velvety.
...exploded with aeration to show sharply delineated flavors of plum, tobacco, hot stones and smoked meat. Wonderfully fat and full wine that spreads out on the back to saturate the entire palate.
High toned and spicy. Lots tucked in there for the future.
