International Wine CellarDeep blackish-ruby. Focused, penetrating aromas of caramel, chocolate, plum and vanilla. Round and caressing on the palate, sweet and silky; flavors of plum and raspberry. Offers lovely texture and volume on the back half. Very elegant and very long, finishing with classy tannins.
User Tasting Note
BigmarTasted by SMagowan on 12/25/2011 & rated 99 points: WOW. This has a near perfect nose balancing fruit, a hint of oak, some fresh tobacco notes, earth and a whisp of menthol. On the tongue it is like a fire that does not scorch but only warms ever so gently until a lasting finish of 30 - 45 seconds caresses your mouth, ears and the back of the head. It tastes of black cheery, light light oak, and soft delicious tannins. A grand experience for a Christmas dinner of prime rib. Bravo! (1087 views)
