Tusk 2008 offers dark chocolate, violet, blackcurrant, sweet black truffles and espresso bean aromas. In tasting this unforgettable wine, the following words come to mind: Intense, powerful, opulent, sophisticated, superb velvety texture and ripe dark fruits. Extremely detailed grape sorting created even ripeness throughout fermentation. The extended finish is a sign of “grand vin”; it should age gracefully for many years.
