Complex nose of blackberries, currants, oyster shells, iodine, gravel, cloves, dried leaves and bark. Medium-bodied with firm, very fine tannins. Layered and serious. Extremely long in the finish.
...succulent black fruits that are braced with tannins and a firm, spicy structure.
...aromas of wild berries, cassis, licorice, rose petals and sweet soil tones, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety and seamless palate, its powdery structuring tannins hidden in an ample core of lively, succulent fruit.
...gorgeous... Deep and translucent in feel...hints of crushed red berry fruit, mint, spice, rose petal and orange peel. I especially admire the overall energy and aromatic presence.
...ripe, fresh and rather direct beam of cassis and bitter plum fruit lined with a bright iron note. Delivers a dash of savory on the sleek finish.
Busy and expressive on the nose with vineyard-fresh dark fruit, black-olive and mineral notes. Juicy and fresh on the palate with a fine grain of tannin behind.
