The aromas of orange peel, flowers, walnuts and chocolate are really enticing. Full-bodied, yet in check and focused. Chewy and flavorful...beautifully done.
...lengthy and complex, with nuanced oak and tannin. Notes of tree bark, licorice and bittersweet chocolate play around violet and cassis undertones, leading to a full-bodied framework of structure and intensity.
Lovely savory, tobacco leaf and mineral notes mark this bottling, with a core of gently mulled cassis and plum fruit just a half step behind, finishing with a sanguine twinge on the finish. Much less reliant on sheer fruit than most of its colleagues, but no less serious, making for a nice change of pace.
Black cherry, mocha, spice, new leather, licorice and lavender infuse the 2018 with striking depth and character... Bright acids perk things up nicely. This is such a pretty wine.
...notes of warm red currants, fresh blackberries and Morello cherries... Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with intense red berry and earthy layers with a firm frame of grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a lively herbal lift.
