*Two Stars* With its firm but not overly tight fruit making the early going and built alongside somewhat supple, gracefully balanced lines, this bottling shows plenty of varietal precision to its personality and stays on a consistent line from front to back. Its freshness lifts its ripe cherry fruit and a bit of creamy oak adds underlying richness, but there are tannins for aging as well, and as inviting as this wine would seem to be, it is bound to grow for a half-dozen years.
Brilliant ruby. Pungent aromas of cassis, cherry-cola, violet pastille, licorice and incense show complicating notes of spicecake and white pepper. Densely packed but lively blackcurrant and cherry liqueur flavors are sappy and sweet, with bright acidity adding lift. Turns spicier and more energetic with aeration, picking up a star anise note that carries strongly through a smooth, subtly tannic, long finish. (JR)
Deep aromas of blackberry, ripe raspberry, smoked meats and wet black slate emerge on the nose of this wine from one of the region’s pioneers. The strong slate minerality also shows on the palate against a backdrop of sleek sanguine flavors and big, dark but not overly ripe cherry fruits.
Well done in a reined-in style, with gravel- and mineral-laced dried berry fruit that shows a cleansing vibrancy on the finish. (Web-2015)
