Quite dark blacck plum color. Spicy, oaky nose. Initial mouth sensation is tartness. Then, Spring Mouhtain tannin takes over. Some cassis and black fruit flavors. Some bitterness in the back of the palate, However, the finish is very satisfying. No, I don't mean that its great now that I've swallowed it. This wine is opening up as I am sipping. The tartness is diminished in subsequent tastes. Fruit does not jump out. Rather the wine has taken a refreshing drinkable character. US$29.99 at Costco.

Lots of red and black currant on the nose with young wood and a touch of green herbaceousness. Flavors of blackberry with firm tannin, good acid and nice minerality. Nice and lingers on ripe fruit with good acid. 88 pts. 4/20/13

Rich and meaty, with a dense, gutsy core of loamy earth, dried herb and berry, and tobacco. Firm and structured, harboring compact mountain-grown fruit that will reward cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2024.

So ripe, you can taste the sun bursting through the blackberry flavor. Firm, refined tannins, good acidity and a grounding minerality provide complex structure to this intensely concentrated mountain wine. Drink now–2018.
