Nose has light sweet watermelon candy notes with light coconut and lilac overtones. Palate is crisp and clean, with beautifully balanced acid. Some sour cream potato chip flavors, with lime and orange blossom notes. Light CO2 keeps the palate refreshing and buoyant, and the finish is almost creamy.
The nose is full of cassis and currants, opening to vanilla, cocoa, and ripe blackberry. The palate has an amazing silky depth with rippling muscular tannins covered in jammy, ripe, dark berries, and melting black licorice.
This wine offers intense aromas of plum, dark cherry and fig jam, layered with chocolate fudge and baking spices. Dark chocolate and mocha flavors emerge on the long finish with chewy, coating tannins.
The aromas have beautiful dark fruit, black cherry and boysenberry, with a hint of spicy oak and red currant. The palate is still evolving, and though the front of the palate has some velvety fruit, the mid palate is in the big explosive fruit stage, supported by good acidity and a lively finish. Another year will increase the mouth coating dimension, and another year will bring more quiet dignity.
The nose has a light, spicy, cranberry-raspberry quality, with a little toast and cocoa. The palate has bright spicy red fruit – wild plum and wild cherry, with an almost crunchy cranberry freshness to it. The serious quality will develop as it ages, but for now the fruit is up front and dominant.
The aroma has lovely floating blackberry and expensive perfume aromas, with violets around the edges. The palate is deep, rich, soft, and caressing, starting with black cherry and vanilla flavors, and rolling into beautifully rounded blackberry and black currant, with an almost silky finish.
"The palate has vanilla raspberry cream soda flavors which move into a ripe and charming palate balanced with a darker black cherry component on the finish."
The wine offers classic rich aromas of dark roses and some loamy earth, with brighter dark berry and raspberry starting to emerge. At first, it feels light and refreshing, with a growing undercurrent of berry fruit on a warm firm texture of ripe tannin.
The nose floats out as soon as the cork is pulled, with violets, blackberries, and cassis swirling in and out. The palate is still young, focused and energetic, with a strong structure that will reward aging. Black fruit and fine tannin from French oak are just beginning to integrate into the mid-palate. This wine should continue to improve for years to come and to reward the collector.
This late Harvest has a big, tangy, botrytis nose, with honey, jasmine, and a little apricot that will grow with time. The palate is huge, rich, and unctuous, with all sorts of caramelized peach, pear, and apple. The texture is really decadent, clean on the finish, but absolutely a show stopper.
The nose is fresh and pretty with hints of raspberry, watermelon, and lilac. It has a clean crisp watermelon palate, with a bit of pink grapefruit.
The nose has graceful honeysuckle, lime peel, hyacinth and elder flower notes. The palate is creamy and opulent, with well centered honeydew melon and nectarine flavors, while the wine finishes bright and satisfying with long, lingering white peach notes.
"This wine has aromas of butter, cream, apples and caramel supported by the underlying sweetness of honeysuckle."
