Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=94) Blueberry and plum aromas here with some flowers and hot stones, too. Complex. Medium body. Juicy fruit in the center palate. Soft, refined tannins and fresh acidity. Lovely complexity and focus. Drink in 2021.
(RP=93+) Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Gazin has a beautifully fragrant nose of potpourri, chocolate-covered cherries and spiced mulberries with a core of warm plums and cherry cordial plus a waft of wild blueberries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm frame of ripe, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and earthy.
(AG=92) Powerful and lush, the 2017 Gazin is super-expressive and inviting. Leather, spice, cedar menthol and dried herbs give the 2017 a very pretty, earthy character that works quite well. The 2017 builds nicely in the glass, showing terrific persistence and plenty of character. It will be even better once the tannins soften a touch. Tasted three times.
