Smoky and sweet with a big teriyaki jerky note, lots of cracked pepper, boysenberries, roasting chestnuts, nori and a peachy floral tone. Big and lush in the mouth with lots of fruit and some serious, slightly dry tannins. This nice power and rich fruit with the tannins preventing this from being cloying. Lots of vanilla does ad some sweetness on the mid-palate which features some tobacco, floral, and black mineral spice notes. The finish is short and dry with dusty blueberry fruit., Dry and tense, an interesting and unusual style. 89pts

Aromas of pomegranate, black raspberry, flowers, black pepper and minerals along with wet stone. Some black plum as well. Flavors of all that with fresh herbs. Superb elegance, balance and power with a focused, long finish. Really big, complex and tasty! 95 pts. 8/12/11 at Tasting Room
