This is quite intensely perfumed with plenty of toasty oak notes. Powerful plum, dried herb and roasted fruit notes handle the oak well and offer up accents of licorice, violets and a hint of chipotle. Nice and fresh on entry, there's not a lot of flesh here and the slightly drying tannins poking out on the mid-palate attest to that. There's plenty of fruit though, with rich wild plum and boysenberry fruit over notes of coffee, chocolate, earth and some subtle black spice. The finish is moderately long and brisk. The tannins show their edges again, but the fruit sticks right with them. A touch rustic perhaps, but a lovely wine that shows off excellent intensity of flavor without much weight. 14.5 percent ABV and frankly not a hint of it. 91pts

a complex, subtle aroma of red berries with balanced notes of American oak. rich flavors of ripe berries. Exeptional just by the glass or with your favorite beef or veal dish. Very food friendly.
