This has gorgeous aromas of walnuts, chocolate, spiced plums, licorice and grilled herbs. Rich and chewy with a full body and firm, broad tannins. Opulent, yet held in check. Salty undertones to the ripe fruit and spice. Concentrated from start to finish.
...dark, richly concentrated, textured and soft. It offers a broad collection of plummy dark fruit aromas with cherry preserves, chocolate-covered prunes, grilled rosemary and Indian spice. However, what stands out most in this edition is the power and the firmness of the tannins.
Rich, dense and explosive... Inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, new leather and spice abound.
This is powerful, from the vanilla- and coconut-scented oak to the concentrated blackberry, black currant and fruitcake flavors to the muscular tannins that support it all. Notes of Mediterranean scrub and tobacco peek through on the long finish.
