Impenetrable red-purple; rich, concentrated and luscious blackberry/blackcurrant/cassis fruit on both bouquet and palate has largely - though not entirely - subsumed the oak. Likewise, the tannins are there, but are in perfect balance.
Very dark purple-edged red. Brooding, very closed nose suggests dark plum, cassis and blackberry, intermeshed with dark chocolate and cedary oak notes and a whiff of briar. Assertive and powerful; a long-term red whose rich palate of dark fruit is tightly integrated with a firm spine of youthfully astringent tannins. Tough and rather unyielding at the moment, but should develop slowly and gracefully over the long term.
No tasting note given.
Deep, rich aromas give way to a plush-textured dollop of black cherry, plum, cassis, chocolate, herb and spice flavors. Tannins are supple and the finish is generous.
Ripe, round and generous with its mineral-laced, currant, cherry and earthy aromas and flavors, echoing solidly on the firm-textured finish.
