...powerful, complex red...offers black-plum flavors muted by shades of earth, sun-scorched garrigue and a lingering vein of salty minerality...soft in tannin...
A bright savory note leads off this red, followed quickly by sanguine and bay leaf accents, all melding nicely with the core of steeped blackberry, raspberry and plum fruit flavors as they move through the rich, licorice root–tinged finish.
Red and blue fruit, garrigue, pungent floral and exotic spice aromas show fine definition and mineral lift. Juicy black raspberry, boysenberry and candied lavender flavors deepen through the back half, with no loss of energy. Closes with emphatic, spicy thrust on the penetrating finish, which features even tannins and resonating floral and blue fruit notes.
Aromas of blackberry, cocoa, black cherry and a hint of cedar. Full-bodied with slightly chewy tannins. Tannins and fruit are very nicely integrated with real composure and structure. Focused and succinct. Coffee and plum.
...a brilliant wine...offers a smorgasbord-like array of black raspberry and darker cherry fruits as well as orange blossom, candied violets, and peppery garrigue. Full-bodied and concentrated, with ripe, sweet tannins, it has the vintage's forward, fruit-loaded, undeniably delicious profile front and center.
...full-bodied...delivers plenty of bold raspberry and blueberry notes...almost creamy across the mid-palate...a bit more open-knit and coarser-textured on the lingering finish...a delicious effort...
