This wine offers intense aromatics of black plum, cassis and currant, with smoky leather, mushroom and graphite accents. A second layer displays dried berries, cedar, and hints of crushed rock. Voluptuous on the palate, delivering flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and plum on a seamless texture. Nuances of sandalwood, sage and damp forest floor earthiness add depth and complexity, all in exquisite balance. Firm but gentle tannins provide ample structure that supports a long nish of black cherry, cigar box and just a hint of mocha.
A refined and elegant wine with a nose of strawberries and chocolate, with plum, currant and cherry cola. These sweet aromas are rounded out with notes of white pepper, lavender and a hint of eucalyptus. Graceful on the palate but with underlying power this wine offers flavors of boysenberry, kirsch and black plum, accompanied by cedar, black olive, mushroom and crushed stone. Exceptionally well-balanced and integrated, with a tannic structure that is just right. A smooth finish leaves lingering notes of chocolate covered strawberry and lilac.
