...spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit... well-concealed behind the extravagant, richness, full-bodied power, and pure nobility of this majestic wine.
Knockout nose combines sexy black raspberry, smoky earth tones, dark chocolate and spices. Lush, dense, sweet and complete, with black fruit, cocoa powder and mineral flavors offering both full ripeness and a cool restraint.
Ripe and dense, but very vibrant and energetic, as a torrent of cassis, blackberry coulis and fig paste rushes through, framed by enticing black licorice and evenly roasted alder and juniper notes. The long finish has lots of grip and acidity, but they work together and are deeply embedded.
