Chateau Ste. Michelle/Villa Antinori, Col Solare, Washington State 2016
Årgang 2016 "Bright, saturated ruby. Pungent scents of cassis, black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, licorice and minerals, plus hints of pepper, mint and menthol; wonderfully complex, vinous and high-pitched. Plush, concentrated and deep, conveying a sexy sweetness to its generous flavors of black fruits, violet and dark chocolate lifted by flowers. This sappy, pliant wine spreads out to saturate the entire palate, finishing with broad, fine-grained tannins and lovely lingering sweetness. Serious wine but even today the tannins are suave."
