*Two Stars* Leading with deep and nicely formed aromas of sweet cherries and integral oak spice, this big, mouthfilling wine steers to ripeness without forgetting about fruit. Its plushness is balanced by just the right measure of supportive acidity, and it avoids even the least bit of heaviness while being fat and full on the palate. While it can develop further with a few years of age, it is already accessible and will make lovely drinking with likes of a mustard-encrusted rack of lamb.
Exhibits dusty berry, cola and wild raspberry flavors in a complex, well-focused style. Ripe and tannic, this shows nice fruit on the finish, where the tannins provide traction. (JL)
Medium red. Aromas of spicy raspberry, strawberry and cherry skin. Round, ripe and easygoing, with red fruit flavors complemented by soil tones of mocha and underbrush. Finishes with sweet, slightly dusty tannins. (ST)
Oak tannin gives this wine a peaty scent, the fruit contributing cool tones of strawberry and rose. The char of the oak becomes more dominant with air; this could grow into a beauty if the fruit manages to absorb all the oak. For the cellar.
