...bursting with aromas of charcoal, scorched earth, barbecue smoke, lead pencil shavings, graphite, cassis, blackberries, and oak... this is a big, muscular, full-bodied effort... Its potential is extraordinary...
This is rich on the nose, with chocolate, plum, blueberries, and coffee. Full bodied, classy, and powerful. A gorgeous wine, but this is still a little reserved. The finish goes on and on though. This will improve with some extra age.
Superripe aromas of cassis, graphite and mint. Sweeter and more aromatic in the mouth than the Insignia, showing a finer-grained texture and more early finesse.
