This wine really grew on me. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cocoa, and leather. Plummy finish, with a taste in the back of your throat of violets. Didn't care for it so much at first, but it opened up nicely suggesting that it does need some more age.

Rated 88 because it strays from what I want in a Carignane but it's really delicious and worth a 90 for enjoyment. I've put it up twice ("put it away" for the rest of you but I've been living in the South for 20 years) only to pull it out again for just a little bit more each time. Smells include anise, red licorice (I know there's no such thing -- I'm referring to the candy), tar and dried fruit. Tastes include cherry, raisin and cedar. It's goes down smoothly with a silky texture and a long, mildly astringent finish.

A few days ago someone dropped some ripe cherries on the floor in the barn near the kerosene can and under the hanging saddles.
