Powerful and ripe on the nose with savory black olive and spicy peppercorn notes framing deep blackberry fruit with hints of vanilla and fresh cut cedar. Smooth and fairly rich on entry with a soft yet decisive mouthfeel. There's plenty of fruit here. Slightly dried berry fruit is framed with well judged oak and topped with herbal, savory black olive and beef jerky notes and late arriving candied elements. The finish is fairly vibrant and long with a touch of heat, nice, savory blue floral aromatics and a lingering chocolate cigar box spice note. This is a powerful wine and one that might benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar. 90pts
