($60) Bright purple. Explosively perfumed bouquet of raspberry, blueberry, spicecake, potpourri and anise, with a subtle mocha undertone. More serious on the palate, where chewy cherry-cola and licorice qualities are complicated by notes of violet pastille and black cardamom. Large-scaled, fat and spicy, with strong finishing grip and supple tannins.

Ripe, fleshy and generous, but not nearly over the top, with gorgeous cherry, pomegranate, black olive and bay leaf flavors arching beautifully and swirling through the long, supple finish.

For the first time, didn't decant this full fruity gem. Good but not at its best.

A fruit bomb to the nose, lots of berry flavors. Taste very fruity too, some spices and pepper.

Inky garnet in the glass, this wine has a deep earthy nose of wet dirt and rich blackberrie pie. In the mouth it is smooth and silky, with great acid balance and ruich juicy flavors of dark boysenberry, blackberry, and cassis flavors that linger into a long finish.
