Tasting Notes and Scores
(mainly merlot and cabernet franc, with small amounts of cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot; 15% alcohol): Inky purple. Brooding aromas of oak-accented dark berries, licorice and tobacco, complicated by a smoky overtone. Lush and creamy, with densely packed cassis and blackberry flavors complemented by vanilla, spice and violet nuances. The polished, noble tannins deliver structure and support to an essentially very ripe wine. There is an element of refinement here that is impressive for such a big, long wine.
This is very sexy with decadent meat, berries and spices. Cooked rhubarb. Hints of cocoa. Full body, with a racy and intense mid-palate. Racy and balanced. Long, long finish. Just coming around now.
The 2008 Biserno is drop-dead gorgeous. A blend of mostly Cabernet Franc, with dollops of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, the 2008 Biserno is rich, seamless and opulent, yet also beautifully balanced at the same time. A warm, open bouquet redolent of mocha, espresso, wild herbs and smoke leads to plush fruit as this harmonious, totally symmetrical wine opens up. This is a great showing.
