Bright ruby. Deeply pitched dark berry and cherry compote aromas are lifted by a smoky mineral quality and a suave floral nuance. Offers sweet dark berry and rose pastille flavors and a bright jolt of blood orange that adds a refreshingly bitter note. Chewy tannins firm the finish, with the cherry and mineral notes strongly echoing. (ST)
*Editors' Choice* This is deep and ruby in hue, while the aromas are spicy, brightly oaky and reminiscent of red cherries. Ripe yet fresh and tangy flavors recall cherries and raspberries, while a vein of darker plum comes in and lingers on the long finish. It’s serious and delightful at the same time, and will age well; delicious now, but best after 2016. *Editors' Choice* (JG)
Shrouded by oak at first, this takes on an intriguing spiciness with air, its meaty, toothsome texture offering scents of smoke, menthol and wild sage. Give it a few more years to integrate, then pour it with bacon-wrapped wild duck.
