Community Tasting Note
WineCellarTV Likes this wine: (92 points)
November 11, 2013 - Deep dark-red, garnet. Dense and vibrant.
Rich aromatics of Dark Berries with mostly Cassis, Cedar, some Cherry and Blackberry. Herbs, Spices, little Mocha and Dark Chocolate.
Notes of Toasted Oak and Earth.
Beautiful complexity, richness and elegance (!).
Rich Cherry, Cassis and other Dark Fruit flavors.
Earthy characters come with Tar, Dark Chocolate and little Tobacco.
Moderate but Vital Tannins.
Finishes deep and long with Dark, Soft Fruit, Spiciness and Finesse.
Lean and elegant, but powerful!
A harmonious, balanced and complex wine with perfect structure.
Present, silky tannins, but outstanding elegance and, thereby, a wine which is approachable now, but ultimately made to last.
