aromas of blackberries, pepper, currants and an earthiness. a little spicy on the palate, a deep seeded structure with a concentration of black fruit.
In between the Tapestry and the Latour in character. Big red fruit nose but more spice and smoke. Red fruit & spice in the flavors but not integrated yet. Like the 06 Tapestry, it needs time.
Nice frame, supple texture and approachable berry flavors. - Tasted at winery 4/19/10
