A complex nose opens with pungent dark fruit, including layers of blackberry, dark plum, and deep black cherry. Fruits are enveloped by an array of terrene aromas, including green forest floor, rich earth, rosemary, cinnamon, banana pepper, and tobacco. Hints of butter and crème brulee add thickness to the layers. A burst of berry lushness explodes from front to back along the tongue creating a salivating flow of fruit-filled sensuality. A peppery counterpoint laces and punctuates the travel of taste all the way into a voluptuous, lengthy finish. Moderate acidity and smooth tannins make for a well-balanced, elegant wine.

Full ruby-red. Black raspberry licorice truffle shoe polish and a note of black olive on the nose. Sweet lush and plump with expressive flavors of black plum syrup dark chocolate mocha and truffle. This boasts a solid middle to support its substantial ripe tannins. Finishes with dark fruits and earth. This has turned out very well. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
