Lavish richness offers a wide aromatic range of black and red fruits which harmonizes with their intense purple or garnet color.
Has gorgeous aromas of blackberry, spices, chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied, with a mouthfilling palate. Long and velvety. A joy to taste now. Best after 2011. 5,300 cases made.
An exuberant, sweet bouquet of caramelized black cherries and currants interwoven with tapenade, toasty oak, earth, and truffles soars from the glass of this dark purple-hued 2005. It is a rich, concentrated, full-bodied, impressive effort displaying well-integrated wood and unobtrusive acidity. This is the finest Gazin since the brilliant 2001. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
Bright ruby-red. Black raspberry, blackberry, mocha, coffee and sexy oak on the slightly liqueur-like nose; very Pomerol. Suave on entry, then dense and fresh in the middle but not overly sweet or overdone. Finishes with good breadth, building tannins and lingering torrefaction notes of chocolate and licorice. Range: 89-92
Here is a very juicy, full-scaled look at Merlot that is at once very rich and inviting yet still fairly tannic as well. Its seductive themes of ripe cherries, caramel, rooty spice and sweet smoke linger on in spite of slight heat and its youthful, mildly chalky astringency, but, given its very real impressions of extract and depth, it is easy to predict that this solid success that will only grow better and better over the next few years.
