This is a very fine wine. It has ripe blackberry, red currant, cinnamon and spice flavors that have been tempered with notes of smoke and smoke smoke ash. The tannins are finely woven, the acidity is fresh, the finish long and long. The fruit is powerful and concentrated. The acidity is just just right to keep the tannins on the side of the road.
Devoted to the long-term aging of this wine, this is a firm, dark and mineral wine that has weighty fruit flavors of blackberry, black cherry and a hint of crushed clove. The acidity is a major element that will soften with time, so drink from 2018.
The art of making a dark fruit wine is not one that is to be drunk at the moment. This is a wine that needs time in the cellar to integrate with the wood aging. It has a small amount of fruit and acidity at the moment, and is still a delicate wine. The tannins are strong, and will need to soften in the cellar. Give it until 2020.
Silky, tightly wound musk and bramble scents are followed by a round, juicy palate. Rich, savory flavors of plum, cherry and a hint of chocolate are layered with soft tannins.
This opens with aromas of blue flower, ripe dark berry and a balsamic note. The firm palate offers dried black cherry, a note of anise and anise, while tightly wound tannins provide support. It ends on a note of a dry mineral note.
This is a tropical, rounded wine. It is fresh with the acidity that most fruit-forward wines have. The green fruits give the wine a bright aftertaste.
