Wine Spectator Review
Impressive for the concentrated notes of blackberry, cassis and framboise, with touches of dried violet, black walnut and black pepper. Dense tannins and espresso and tobacco details linger on the finish. Drink now through 2034.
Wine Tasting Notes
Vibrant, dense plum red, red edges. A black Kalamata olive tapenade as a first impression, beneath an overlay of camphor and tobacco. How to say this politely? Boot polish, bitumen, cola, granite ... darkened style/varietal base notes. Yet blackberry conserve and sour cherry fill the (fruity) treble register. Scents of cut straw/steel cut oats fill any aromatic chord gaps. Full-bodied. Substantial. Framboise des bois (raspberry) with pips/vinegar - coulis or apothecary? Meat? Closest association noted - raw/rare venison. Not to deny the welcomed presence of chocolate torte and mocha flavors. A "cloaked" continuum of tannins that linger and reverberate with the discipline of a vinous pendulum. Finishes intact with a flourish of dusty graphite (input of oak?) and balanced acidity.
