Favorite wine of the past month:
The wine is a deep, dark ruby to purple color.  The intense and spellbinding nose has cassis, cedar, tobacco, dusty minerals, blueberries, dried herbs, candied violets, licorice, dark chocolate and some earthiness.  This has medium to full body, solid tannins and good acidity.  Fruit and dried herbs explode on the rich and plush palate slowly allowing minerals, cedar and licorice to squeeze into the picture.  The finish is very long with dark chocolate and some earthiness joining the party.  This is very young but already delicious, drink it now with a fair amount of air or let it rest a couple more years. (95 pts)
