...nose is very complex, offering red cherries and subtly earthy tones...palate has brawny, Pommard-clone power and delivers a bold impression, but velvety layers.
...deep, densely textured mix of black fruits, cocoa powder and baking spices.
...tree bark, lemon, blood orange peel, clove, dried flowers and Indian spices over a core of baked cranberries and blackberries, red and black currants and cherries. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and ultra spicy with firm, grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing very long and spicy.
Intensely perfumed red and blue fruit preserve, mocha, cola and licorice scents, along with hints of exotic spices and vanilla. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense black raspberry, cherry cola, violet pastille and succulent herb flavors that become more energetic as the wine opens up. Smoothly plays richness off finesse and finishes impressively long and smooth, with velvety, harmonious tannins sneaking in late.
