Torbreck Les Amis 2012
Possessing a dense, saturated ruby/purple hue the Les Amis flaunts the concentration, poise and panache of which only the greatest terroirs are gifted. Delicate scents of Chinese five spice, smoke, white flowers and roasted herbs precede a dense, brooding core of black cherry, coal and scorched earth. The well delineated palate offers tremendous texture and combines glorious fruit purity with subtle nuances. Multi-dimensional and incredibly intricate, the wine finishes with crisp acids and a cloak of beautifully ripe, polished tannins.
