The Wine Advocate
Even sweeter than the 10 Years Tawny, this happily adds some concentration to soak up a little of the sugar. It is still in the same style—dominated by its sugar, rather fresh, not particularly intense and with the typical complexity of a mature Tawny relegated to the background. This does add a little complexity, though, and its extra concentration is very welcome. On the whole, this lush and sexy Tawny drinks well, tastes great and is a lot of fun.
From old, field blend vineyards, this Port has a fine nutty character. It shares that with red fruits, gentle spice and a fine balance between sweetness and a drier core. This wine, rich and with toffee flavors.
Full blackberry fruit, generous body and lively acidity make this Moulin-à-Vent easy to enjoy, and the well drafted balance of discreet tannins and mineral acidity at the finish provides very satisfying harmony.
A richly pungent red, with smoke and forest floor notes on the nose transitioning to a well-knit range of baked black cherry, bay leaf and dried fig flavors, with a touch of espresso. Full-bodied and dense, with the fine-grained tannins holding sway on the long, minerally finish.
A harmonious Valpolicella in a richer style, displaying a lovely range of plumped black cherry, star anise, espresso crema, cured tobacco and fragrant smoke notes. The sinewy tannins are well-meshed, but lend weight and definition, and the lightly juicy acidity keeps this focused through to the lasting finish.
Rich notes of fig cake, loamy earth, sun-dried cherry and forest floor are framed by gutsy, well-knit tannins and tangy citrus peel acidity in this full-throttle Valpolicella. Accents of Earl Grey tea leaf, dried lavender and sandalwood create an aromatic overtone that lingers on the chewy finish.”
