...energetic blackcurrant cordial, black raspberries and ripe plums scents plus suggestions of cumin seed, fragrant earth, mossy tree bark and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, firm and taut on the palate, with fine-grained tannins and lovely layers, this is also really minerally and has a long finish.
...notable freshness in its aromatics and offers impressive blue fruits, cedar, forest floor, bouquet garni, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. These carry to a concentrated, full-bodied mountain Cabernet that has terrific mid-palate depth, building tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish.
...steeped plum and mulled black currant and fig fruit flavors, yet the texture is fleshy and seductive, with anise, warm fruitcake and wood spice accents filling in. The graphite spine is deeply embedded, giving this form without intruding.
