“Dark ruby. High-pitched red and dark berry and violet aromas show excellent focus and pick up hints of cracked pepper and sandalwood with air. Sappy and seamless in texture, offering fresh black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied licorice. Turns sweeter on the penetrating, impressively long finish, which features smooth, even tannins and lingering boysenberry and floral qualities.”

“Deep ruby. Powerful black raspberry and cherry liqueur aromas pick up suave floral, incense and spicecake nuances with air, along with a touch of smoky minerality. Rich, chewy and broad on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry, cassis and spicecake flavors that are energized by a core of juicy acidity. Finishes smooth, sweet and very long, with velvety tannins and a strong final kick of peppery spices.”

“Brilliant ruby. Spice-tinged red/blue fruits, succulent flowers and smoky minerals on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering concentrated boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter on the back half. The dark berry note lingers strongly on the spicy, sharply focused finish, which is shaped by smooth, even tannins.”

“A fresh and focused style, with a terrific beam of black cherry and black currant compote flavors. Strong graphite and black tea notes harness the finish, ending with alder and tobacco echoes. This has serious length without losing any drive along the way. Best from 2022 through 2038.”

“Dark and saturated with fig flavors, showing extra boysenberry and black currant compote notes. Ganache and tobacco accents fill in the finish, giving this a slightly gutsy profile. Should mellow with cellaring, as the fruit is hedonistic. Best from 2020 through 2030.”
