VinoUS Media Review
Inky purple. Powerful, smoke- and oak-spiced aromas of dark berries, pipe tobacco and candied violet, along with a suave mineral topnote. Fleshy blackberry and blueberry liqueur flavors show excellent clarity and enlivening Asian spice and cracked pepper qualities. Finishes impressively long and sweet, delivering a resonating echo of candied dark berries, lingering spiciness and supple tannins. (Josh Raynolds)
Wine Tasting Notes
High, dense, dark cherry-colored robe with a purple rim. Impressive parade of aromas, featuring explosive notes of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, vanilla, cocoa, Mediterranean herbs, tobacco, withered leaves, chalk, mineral and wet earth. Meaty and bold. On the palate are ripe fruit, toast, smoke and spices underpinned by some mineral notions. A fresh acidity, yummy tannins and exceptionally long finish.
