...copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness...
...concentrated, deep, powerful style. Beautiful dark fruits, graphite, obvious minerality, and classic Pauillac lead pencil notes...full-bodied, and pure...
Smooth, with dense tannins hidden behind the ripe, pure fruit...shows class and an impeccable balance of fruit and tannin. Rich as well as structured...a beautiful wine.
..high-toned and slightly liqueur-like. Then dense, seamless and vibrant in the mouth, with firm acidity giving outstanding energy to the dark fruit, floral and mineral flavors. Really spreads out on the back end and stays a while..
Quite dense, but pure and fresh, with the core of fig, damson plum and mulled cherry fruit already well-defined and the back end of rounded loam and roasted cedar grip fully integrated. The finish is long and powerful.
...plenty of black fruit on the nose laced with graphite...medium-bodied...clearly well balanced with a surfeit of freshness on the slightly herbaceous finish.
