01/06/2011. This wine is still ripening and needs to age. Nose opens to blackberry, raisin, bitter cocoa powder, anise, and assorted spices. The palate launches with raisins, cocoa and bitter, unripened fruits, including tart plum and cherry, leading to an astringent finish that coats the velvety mouthfeel, leaving a tannic aftertaste.
