Prominent toast lends a smoky cast to the black cherry and black currant flavors in this flamboyant red. A layer of dusty tannins lines the finish. Shows fine intensity and length, with freshness.
Jean-Claude Boisset Reviews
A powerful red, whose broad-shouldered frame encompasses black cherry, blackberry, spice and tobacco flavors. Shows plenty of grip on the long finish, yet the tannins are refined and the lasting impression is of sweet fruit and spice.
Aromas of smoked meat and spice give way to black cherry, earth and stony mineral flavors in this dense, powerful red. The tannins are dominant for now, but there is freshness and a long, complex finish that reveals promise for the future.
This is intense, starting out on the elegant side and building slowly to attain greater density and power. Spice, raspberry and cherry flavors form the center, with a layer of chalk and stone underneath. Shows fine concentration and balance, delivering a long, minerally aftertaste.
