This is finely textured, focused and tight in the mouth with lovely fruit, a touch astringent and dark but showing fine depth and the palate and slow to emerge savory complexity. This is already quite ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Perfumed with aromas of cut red fruit and chalky soil tones over a nice base of oak spice. Air brings out classic roses and cherry in alcohol with a fine white soil tone. This is rich with soft, opulent fruit that remains fresh even though it's quite ripe. While not particularly tannic, there is nice cut to the fruit, and a bit of austerity to h... Read More

This is soft if texturally complete in the mouth silky without being opulent and showing fine cut cherry fruit on the palate, with a late arriving herb and limestone note, This is just a bit austere and dour today,with the wood tannins showing a bit on the f...
