Pepper, bulky, masculine, powerful terpentine smell, woodsy and very tannic..alot of oomph
Terrific from first sip, sublime after a decant. Deep currant, cranberry, juicy. Clever blending of grape varietals that culminates in an extremely balanced and well structured product with elegant finish. My prediction? This wine will age well. But who will let it? Too yummy. If only it were a tad cheaper...sigh...
serve with prime rib

This is serious wine for the cellar - either decant for a few hours and enjoy with a steak, or check back in a few years.

Full medium ruby. Aromas of crushed blackberry, licorice, chocolatey oak and clove oil. Supple, sweet and full, but with lively acidity giving excellent delineation to the fresh blackberry and spice flavors.
