It's full-bodied, rich and velvety yet endowed with copious red berries, flowers and stone fruit. It seems more concentrated than typical for this cuvée. - JC

Pungent cherry pit and black currant aromas, along with hints of licorice, musky herbs and cracked pepper. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering slow-to-open bitter cherry and dark berry flavors braced by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Shows firm tannic grip on the persistent finish, which leaves suggestions of candied licorice and cherry preserves behind. This is a pretty serious example of a "basic" bottling, and it deserves some patience. -- Josh Raynolds
