Aromatically restrained with lots of tobacco and some cinnamon spice accenting fading cherry fruit. Bright and fresh on entry with a shallow mid-palate that is quite eucalyptus/antiseptic scented. The tannins emerge on the backend and give this a lean, dry, somewhat Bordelaise feel but there is no fruit to help balance the structure. A tough wine. 82pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Mature, robust and somewhat earthy. Dried bay and tea leaves, leather, menthol, smoke, forest floor, minerals, but also some cloves and spice, candied apple, and brown sugar. Rolling, dark flavors. Nice balance. Good follow-through to the warm, attractive palate. We decided this would be a great match with Peking duck.
