2006 Mommessin Clos de Tart

Vibrant, bright ruby with purple glints. Medium intensity aromas of perfumed red fruits layered with ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of cola.  The palate is bordering on full-bodied (14% abv), there is a whiff of heat on the nose.  A slightly darker fruit profile when tasted, dark cherry, supple, acidity is crisp and gives the roundness of the mouthfeel a lift.  Tannins are soft, integrated, but present – an able backbone. The feel is graceful, flavors are complex and concentrated, the style is feminine.  Gets richer with air, gaining complexity and the already persistent, long dark cherry finish gets longer. Crazy balance.
