Hints of ginseng and carob accent the candied cherry and blackcurrant aromas that gain a dusting of cocoa and cedar with air. This is broad and low in the mouth on entry, with plenty of toasty, spicy accents to the slow-to-emerge dark fruit. Hints of green anise seed, mint and toasted coriander rise on the mid-palate, along with hints of pomegranate seeds, vanilla and candied wild blackberries. These build in intensity in the mouth, gaining a slightly grapey medicinal tone on the back end before disappearing into a rather firm and assertive finish that's driven by oak and earthy dried fruit flavors. A bit tight and probably cellar worthy, though this will never be a particularly fruity wine. It is attractively firm and assertive. I would like to see how this pairs with a nice roast beef or venison loin. 88pts
