Tanzer"Saturated ruby-red. Initially tight blackberry, cassis and oak nose showed deeper notes of smoke, tobacco, currant and mocha as it opened in the glass. Suave, lush, dense and sweet; shows the pliant texture, concentrated berry fruit and smoothness of a high-end California red. Wonderfully ripe yet decidedly dry. Finishes very long and strong, with suave, sweet tannins."
