At this stage, this wine is all about the tannins that dominate the black fruits. But fruit weight is there, promising good things as the wine matures. Smoky wood and blackberry flavors are set against a solid structure. There is potential here, so let the wine soften and mature. (RV)
A very nicely integrated wine with attractive blue fruit and slate-like, savory elements, offering a complete impression on both nose and palate. Drink or hold.
The 2016 De Sales is medium garnet-purple colored and has a savory nose of red and black berries, plums and earth plus a waft of smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate is chewy with an earthy character and restrained finish. (LPB)
A light waft of dried herb peeks out from the gentle, rounded core of plum and cherry preserve flavors. Subtle tea and cedar notes cling to the finish, which lingers prettily. (JM)
