Burghound - A brooding and all but inexpressive nose reluctantly reveals its notes of plum, cassis, violets and pungent earth. There is a bit more volume to the powerful, concentrated and serious middle weight plus flavors that evidence even more minerality on the mouth coating, firmly structured and impressively long finish. This is clearly going to require extended cellaring to soften what are resolute but not hard tannins Range: 90-93
Darker fruit alongside violet notes. A lovely thick, silky mouthfeel. A very sous bois nose and mild fruit on the midpalate. Full, rich and structured. Sturdy tannins.
