A really fine Chinon with darker fruit than may be typical. Almost curranty fruit marries with tobacco, ancho chili, crushed violets, and potting soil in a plush styled wine with good acidity and supporting tannins that gives this a wonderful mouthfeel. The finish continues the theme with a bit more pronounced acidity refreshing the palate and pushing the fruit more towards the red end of the spectrum. Very fresh yet very ripe and very difficult to finish the entire bottle. 90pts

Very dark purply color. Lots of berries on the nose, but also with a kind of annoying "olivy" scent. Lots of fun in the mouth. Fairly robust, but not over the top. Flavors include blackberry, tobacco, and some peppery spice. Tannin hits around the edge of the tongue. Olive that was detected in the nose is slightly noticeably at first, but, then disappears quickly. Slightly tart on the back of the palate. US$18.99 at Total Wines.
