  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($68) Glass-staining purple. Deeply concentrated dark fruit aromas are brightened by zesty minerals and complicated by smoky bacon and Indian spice qualities. Broad and fleshy, with dense cassis and blueberry flavors and a bitter note of cherry skin. Gains freshness with air, taking a turn to brighter red fruits on the finish. This rich, complex wine finishes with youthfully tight grip and lingering spiciness.

    Silky and alluring, with lovely mocha and espresso aromatics followed by lush black cherry, fig paste and crushed currant notes. Fleshy and pure on the finish, with solid underlying minerality. 2,145 cases made.

    Surprisingly, the 2006 Hermitage Marquise de la Tourette was still tight and angular and has a structured, tannic and fresh personality that's not much fun to drink today. Giving up plenty of black fruits, smoked meats, lead pencil shavings and pepper, it has more than enough density and texture to stand up to its formidable structure, but needs another 2-4 years in the cellar.
