Intense aromas of blackberry, tar and wet earth follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Bark and cigar box undertones. A solid and powerful red yet balanced and poised. Give it two or three years of bottle age after release to soften.
Rich aromas of black fruits, plum sauce, peking duck and dark spice tones are followed by a wine of impressive textural refinement and deep, meaty density. Like the other Larkmead bottlings, this needs time to unfurl, but its raw materials are impressive. Drink 2023-2043. (WK)
Bold and assertive, generous and supple, with a mix of loamy earth, graphite, cedar, tobacco leaf and underbrush flavors. A powerful yet refined expression best served by short-term cellaring. (JL)
Distinctive aromatics of fresh herbs, crushed black rock, and grilled meats roll into flavours of tobacco, tar and a touch of anise. Ultra-fine and persistent tannins and just enough acidity to balance. There is nice freshness here, even with such a dark character, and the wine stays fluid and light on the palate. While oak has clearly been used for this wine it helps to open and show the fruit rather than cloak it. 17.5+/20 points. (ECB)
