Critique Review

This full-boded red offers aromas evoking blue flower, baked plum and pipe tobacco. The firm but polished palate shows concentration and structure, featuring dried cherry, steeped prune and licorice set against fine-grained tannins. Blue flower, mature black-skinned fruit and dark spice mingle with balsamic notes of camphor on this full-bodied red. Concentrated yet still elegantly structured, the chewy, accessible palate shows ripe black raspberry, cherry extract and tobacco framed in fine-grained tannins.
