International Wine CellarGood bright medium ruby. Aromas of raw cassis, black cherry, bitter chocolate, licorice, cedar and leather. Concentrated, focused and penetrating; tightly wound and quite youthfully unevolved. Best today on the finish, which features substantial but thoroughly ripe tannins and a late burst of dark fruit. From a crop level of just under 1.5 tons an acre, notes Zacherle.
