Magenta with subtle brick red hues. Red berry aromas such as red currants and plum and beautifully lifted perfume and spice aromas immediately entice. Hints of eucalypt, dried sage, gunflint, mocha and underlying earth notes.
Red fruit and spice flavors compliment a clean but savory, meaty element. The focused acidity balances perfectly with the firm yet juicy tannins and excellent midpalate fruit weight.
"Shows density and grace, with mineral notes weaving through the
blackberry and dark plum flavors, finishing tight and harmonious.
The tannins are slightly prickly, requiring time to soften. Best from
2010 through 2017."
"Vivid ruby. Reticent but complex nose displays primary red and dark berry aromas along with rhubarb, licorice and Asian spices. Quite bright and spicy in the mouth, with flavors of red- and blackcurrant, blackberry and bitter cherry. Finishes with excellent finishing clarity, lift and lingering spiciness."
