VinoUS Media Review
Vivid ruby-red. An expansive bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, cherry compote, vanilla and tobacco. A sexy floral nuance emerges slowly. Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and cola flavors that are given spine and lift by a core of juicy acidity. Rich yet lively in style, displaying impressive finishing delineation, discreet tannins and lingering spiciness. (Josh Raynolds)
Intense purple in color with powerful and elegant aromas of soft minerals, ink, fresh mint, mulling spice, wild herbs, toffee and cocoa. On the palate, the wine contains ripe tannins and complex flavors of black fruit, licorice, coffee and aromatic herbs. Long and persistent, this wine will age well for 15-20 years.
