Aromas of vanilla, mocha, dill and anise impart complex scents, while the flavors fold over to the palate, joining taut dark berry and cherry notes, supported by firm, tight tannins. Drink now through 2022. Score - 89. (James Laube, winespectator.com, Oct. 31, 2014)
Aromas of fresh blackberries, violets, cola, nutmeg and licorice. In the mouth, the wine offers great expression of fruit and spice on the mid-palate and a long, fruit-driven finish.
It has a deep garnet color and an enticing nose of cassis liqueur, blueberry coulis, tobacco, tarragon and roasting coffee. The seamless palate starts with a berry-laden attack, follows with a full-bodied mid-palate, and ends with a long, savory finish with fine-grained, well-integrated tannins.
