Vivid red. Bright red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by dried rose and brown spices. Tangy, sharply focused red fruits on the palate, with slow-mounting spiciness and building power. Silky tannins add grip to the very long, seamless finish. This gained weight with air but maintained admirable vivacity and clarity.
Bright red. Redcurrant and strawberry on the nose, with a lively underpinning of brown spices. Finely etched red berry flavors are given spine by a nervy mineral quality and pick up a rose pastille note on the back end. Finishes with a sweeter black raspberry quality and very good, sneaky persistence. This wine should age nicely on its balance and freshness. (JR)
Light, silky and inviting, with a gossamer texture letting the delicate blueberry, cherry and nutmeg flavors slip easily through the long, enticing finish. (HS)
