« Prev Next » 3 of 15
Average price: $19.99 from 116 stores
A little firm and meaty on the nose with very tight notes of eucalyptus, tobacco, bitter chocolate, violet and black pepper over hints of black currant. This is really very tight but you can see the fine balance here as this is already seamless with subtle complexity in the mouth. Everything is a bit low key but present with fine blackberry and plum fruit streaked with chocolate, vanilla and gently herbal spices. Air allows the wine to begin to release some attractively floral and spicy inner mouth perfumes that ride over the fruit on the moderately long, succulent finish which shows some blueberry and spiced plum notes. This needs plenty of air or another year in the bottle, but has everything it needs in a fairly refined package. 90pts
